The purpose of ‘News to Use’ is to raise technical awareness regarding state of the art innovation and the importance of attention to detail in designing highly complex biomedical facilities. The concise one page monthly articles condense important technical criteria in the Design Requirements Manual (DRM) and place emphasis on flexible design, safety and health of the occupants, security, and protection of the environment. Each article guides the reader to the appropriate section of the DRM for additional topic detail.
Once a month, DTR will provide a review of a relevant recent journal article or publication that will make it easier for ORF/ORS/IC staff to keep up with the literature in our respective field of expertise. These articles will be of interest to NIH architects, engineers, biosafety professionals, facility managers and operations and maintenance staff.
