Housing near the NIH is increasingly expensive and difficult to obtain. The scholars’ hunt for lodging cuts into valuable research time, and long commutes limit their opportunities to connect and grow as colleagues and scientists. Government restrictions prevent the NIH from providing housing to visiting researchers. That’s where FAES comes in, with a plan designed both to inspire and provide practical solutions.

As a charitable organization closely allied with the NIH, FAES is supplying the land and resources to build an academic residential center to encourage collaboration, creativity, and research.

The FAES-NIH Academic Community will include homes, a commons that researchers can use as a central gathering space, and a state-of-the-art conference center.  

Relationships built on the trust that comes from collaboration will last a lifetime — benefiting not only the researchers, but also the scientific community, and ultimately, the public.
