Zerhouni Returns to Johns Hopkins

Elias Zerhouni, who stepped down as the U.S. National Institutes of Health director last October, is returning to his roots as a professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Zerhouni, a radiologist, was a dean at Hopkins before joining NIH in 2002. He told ScienceInsider that he plans to reestablish a research group in molecular imaging and stay at Hopkins "for the next year at least." He's also working as a senior fellow at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
