FAES provides continuing education and services to promote biomedical enterprise, including programs for scholars, scientists, staff, and visitors at the National Institutes of Health.
FAES was established in 1959 to facilitate a collegial environment and provide education and networking opportunities for biomedical research scientists. Since its founding, FAES has educated more than 150,000 people, and continues to enhance and evolve its educational programming to advance biomedical enterprise. In 1984 the organization expanded from basic science course offerings to include biotechnology with a series of short-term lecture and laboratory hands-on training workshops. FAES now offers year-round learning in basic and life sciences, biotechnology, data science, science policy, leadership and other skill areas via academic courses, interactive workshops, educational webinars, lecture series, and hands-on laboratory training at the NIH. FAES also offers management and entrepreneurial programs for scientists who want to bridge the gap between the bench/bedside and business or other fields.
In addition to continuing education and training, FAES provides support to the NIH community with a comprehensive health insurance plan for intramural trainees, limited housing for research fellows, retail stores and the only bookstore in the NIH Clinical Center, as well as sponsored campus events like annual performances by the entire National Symphony Orchestra in the Clinical Center Atrium.
