in 1887, the National Institutes of Health today is one of the world's
foremost medical research centers, and the Federal focal point for
medical research in the United States. The NIH, comprising 27 separate
Institutes and Centers, is one of eight health agencies of the Public
Health Service which, in turn, is part of the U.S. Department of Health
and Human Services.
The goal of NIH research is
to acquire new knowledge to help prevent, detect, diagnose and treat
disease and disability, from the rarest genetic disorder to the common
The NIH mission is to uncover
new knowledge that will lead to better health for everyone. NIH works
toward that mission by conducting research in its own laboratories;
supporting the research of non-Federal scientists in universities,
medical schools, hospitals and research institutions throughout the
country and abroad; helping in the training of research investigators;
and fostering communication of medical and health sciences information.
NIH has about 6000 staff
scientists and supports more than 325,000 researchers at more than 3000
institutions in the United States and around the world.
