Introducing the Director of the National Library of Medicine

National Institutes of Health Director Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D. has announced that Patricia Flatley Brennan, R.N., Ph.D. will become Director of the National Library of Medicine. She is expected to begin in August 2016.

Throughout her career, Dr. Brennan has accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience that makes her uniquely qualified to serve as the next Director of the world’s largest biomedical library. She has successfully bridged her commitment to providing high quality patient care as a practicing nurse with an entrepreneurial approach that uses technology and information systems to actively engage patients in furthering their own health care and outcomes. Dr. Brennan is the first female director and non-physician to lead the National Library of Medicine.

MLA congratulates Dr. Brennan on her appointment, and we look forward to continuing our close partnership with NLM staff for many years to come.
