Transcript:
In 1975, when I became Director, I think one of the most prominent defects to be repaired at the boundary between NIH and society was the definition of those very boundaries themselves. More specifically, we had to find ways against a barrage of criticism to protect our scientific programs from regulatory and service obligations, including excessive health promotion exercises that can be constant threats to the objectivity and the maintenance of the sharpest edge on our instruments of scientific inquiry.
