About the FAES Bookstore

After a decade of planning, the Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences cut the ribbon in 2013 on the highest profile undertaking in FAES’s 50+ year history at NIH: a 20,000-square-foot renovation in the heart of Bldg. 10’s first floor that encompasses the FAES academic classrooms, a large, sky lighted terrace, new administrative offices, a faculty club/dining room and a graduate student lounge.

FAES Bookstore @ NIH, the most public facing aspect of the new FAES Academic Center, has been providing medical and science textbook services to NIH for over 50 years. Our new location, just steps away from Masur Auditorium and the FAES classrooms, is ideally located to support the specialized book needs of the FAES Graduate School and the NIH scientific community.

Our new location in the Clinical Center has afforded us the opportunity to expand our products and services significantly, to the benefit of Building 10 visitors and staff, as well as to Clinical Center patients and their families. FAES has partnered with CAFÉ 10 to run a successful coffee bar and sandwich shop adjacent to the bookstore. We have also brought in a diverse assortment of products, including clothing, gifts, greeting cards, and supplies to further fulfill our organization’s mission of providing valuable services to NIH.

FAES Bookstore @ NIH can order any book in print!

FAES Bookstore @ NIH supports NIH authors!

If you are a member of the NIH community that has written a book, or if your department is hosting a speaker that is an author, FAES Bookstore @ NIH would be thrilled to lend our support with an “Author Meet and Greet” event.

Due to government regulations, we are unable to provide off-site book sales, however, we have had several successful gatherings of authors and community members in the bookstore itself. Often, these gatherings can be timed either just before or just after a scheduled lecture. The bookstore will have a number of the author’s titles on hand for the event which can be purchased and then signed by the author.  Depending on timing and attendance, the author will be available to answer questions about his or her work.

If you are interested in more information about participating in an “Author Meet and Greet” event, please contact the FAES Bookstore by phone (301) 496-5272 or email:

FAES Bookstore @ NIH is located on the first floor of Building #10, Room 1C172, near the Masur Auditorium.
