How To Watch - First in Human: Real-life experiences of doctors, patients and researchers of NIH Clinical Center

How To Watch - First in Human

Welcome to this issue of "Weekend Reading," if you missed the new Discovery documentary "First in Human" about cutting-edge research taking place at the "National Institutes of Health’s Clinical Center," watch past and current episodes on either your TV (if you have on demand) or a favorite device by logging into your TV provider (cable or satellite company); list provided further down this page.

Documentary Background
