Three members of the Scientific Library staff are pictured inside the library.

The Scientific Library at NCI at Frederick provides resources and services to support cutting-edge cancer, AIDS, and infectious disease research, and the librarians and informationists are ready to guide researchers to any information they need. Within the past year, two new staff members began working at the Scientific Library: Biosciences Informationist Matt Stirling and Public Services Librarian Joelle Mornini. Librarian Tracie Frederick, who has been with the Scientific Library for 12 years, also stepped into the role of Library Director in 2018. 


U.S.–Chinese Research Team Explains the Link Between Diabetes and Severe Brain Cancer

The team’s paper asserts that high amounts of a sugar called glucose trigger multiple biological processes that snowball to increase glioblastoma’s aggressiveness.


At Student Poster Days, Interns Seek to Improve Scientific Communication

2019 Student Poster Days event

Each summer, dozens of students from the Werner H. Kirsten and Summer Internship Programs who have been hard at work under the supervision of seasoned scientists and mentors gather to share their research with the NCI at Frederick and Frederick National Laboratory community. Over two days in late July, 46 students ranging from high school to graduate school presented their findings to mentors, scientists, and their fellow interns at the NCI at Frederick campus and the Advanced Technology Research Facility.
