Begun as a one-room Laboratory of Hygiene in 1887, the National Institutes of Health today is one of the world's foremost biomedical research centers, and the Federal focal point for biomedical research in the U.S.

WHAT IS THE NIH MISSION AND ORGANIZATION?

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 information.

NIH is one of the agencies of the Public Health Services which, in turn, is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Comprised of 27 separate components, mainly Institutes and Centers, NIH has in excess of 75 buildings on more than 300 acres in Bethesda, Maryland. From a total of about $300 in 1887, NIH has been appropriated nearly $23.4 billion for 2002.

WHAT IS THE GOAL OF NIH RESEARCH?

Simply described, 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 cold.
