"First in Human"
Premieres Thursday, August 10 at 9 PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel
 
           Narrated by Emmy®, Golden Globe®, and Critics Choice® winning actor Jim Parsons, this is an unprecedented look inside the National Institutes of Health’s building 10, where the nation’a greatest minds are making the medicine of tomorrow.

          Just miles from the nation’s capital, on the campus of the revered National Institutes of Health, sits this Clinical Center, or Building 10: the largest hospital in the world devoted solely to medical research. The building houses the brilliant minds and courageous patients that enroll in “First in Human” clinical trials. Wading into uncharted medical territory in the hopes of discovering scientific breakthroughs, these early, highly experimental – and at times risky tests – are all in an effort to develop new, breakthrough treatments for patients suffering from currently untreatable diseases and conditions.
