Dr. William Gahl, Program Director, National Institutes of Health

Each year, sick people are told they have diseases so rare, they can't be diagnosed. Investigators at the National Institutes of Health looked at hundreds of cold cases. They've created a new network to tackle these mysterious diseases. The Undiagnosed Diseases Network will recruit doctors to conduct research that planners hope will lead to better understanding of these puzzling symptoms and find treatments. Six universities around the country have signed on. NIH Program Director Dr. William Gahl joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the new effort.

Janine Clayton, NIH

At one time, medical researchers conducted their studies only on men. That started changing more than 20 years ago. Now, the National Institutes of Health says more than half of human research subjects are women. But when it comes to research on animals, or even cells, most continues to be done on males. Janine Clayton wants to change that. She's the Associate Director for Research on Women's Health at NIH. She joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to explain the new research policy.
