Getting to the Natcher Conference Center
To get to NIH campus via metro, take the Red Line in the direction of Shady Grove to the Medical Center stop. The Natcher Conference Center is a 5-minute walk from the Medical Center station (it is located on Center Drive, directly behind the Medical Center Stop). Information about the Metro transit system, including fares, schedules, and estimated travel times from other stops, can be found at https://www.wmata.com/ .
Please note that there are very few visitor parking spaces at NIH, and it is strongly recommended that attendees take public transportation or a taxi to the meeting. However, if you must drive, you can take the Wisconsin Avenue exit from the Capital Beltway (Rte 495) and go 1.5 miles south on Wisconsin Avenue toward Bethesda to the 5th traffic light at Center Drive/Jones Bridge Rd. Turn right onto Center Drive. The Natcher Building is at 45 Center Drive and is located across from the Library of Medicine. Due to increased security on the NIH campus, a guard or policeman will stop you at the entrance to South Drive and ask for your driver's license and the purpose of your visit. You will be sent to a parking lot nearby and your car will be inspected. After the inspection, you will receive a visitor pass. Continue down South Drive to the intersection with Center Drive. Turn left, and then make the third left into the visitor parking lot. This turn is immediately after the turn into the plaza in front of the William H. Natcher Building (Building 45) and just before a large intersection and traffic light.
A map of the NIH campus can be found here: https://www.ors.od.nih.gov/maps/Pages/NIH-Visitor-Map.aspx.
You will be required to enter the NIH campus through NIH security at the NIH Gateway Center (located at the top of the Medical Center metro escalators) and present a government-issued photo ID. Please allow additional time for this security check.
