Dr. Ruth L. Kirchstein, for whom the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) is named, passed away on October 6, 2009.  Aside from Dr. Kirschstein's scientific accomplishments in polio vaccine development, and becoming the first woman director of an NIH Institute, she was a champion of research training and a strong advocate for the inclusion of underrepresented individuals in the scientific workforce. More on Dr. Kirschtein's life can be found at:
