National Institutes of Health
The mission of the NIH is to uncover new
knowledge that will lead to better health for
everyone by
conducting research in its own laboratories
(intramural) providing support for research
conducted by scientists in universities, medical
schools, hospitals, and other research
institutions throughout the country and abroad
(extramural) training research
investigators fostering the communication of
medical information

10
Key elements of intramural program
  • Intellectual freedom ability to do high-risk,
    high- impact science because of a predominantly
    retrospective review system
  • Stable resources and funding for new technology
    and long-term projects
  • A critical mass of talent to collaborate with
    recruitment from diverse sources, an eye for
    talent
  • Leadership that recognizes the unique features of
    the NIH intramural program and preserves them
    support for unconventional ideas

11
Unique Features of Intramural Research
  • Well-equipped, safe, modern research laboratories
    (6,800,000 sq. ft.)
  • State-of-the-art equipment
  • Extensive animal facilities
  • Effective technology transfer program

12
Unique Features of Intramural Research
  • Clinical Center--a hospital dedicated to research
  • Access to patients with rare diseases from across
    the U.S. and the world
  • ICs with specific disease orientations
  • Ability to respond quickly to public health
    threats

13
Key intramural achievements
  • Development of cell/tissue culture media and
    techniques
  • First cure of a solid tumor (choriocarcinoma)
    using chemotherapy
  • First clinical trial of lithium for depression
  • Critical contributions to understanding the
    cause, pathophysiology, and drugs for HIV-AIDS
  • Development of sequence similarity database
    searching and comparison
  • Research resulting in 5 Nobel Prizes, including
    the elucidation of the genetic code

14
Interdisciplinary Research Areas
  • Bench-to-bedside/translational research
  • Physics, chemistry, and engineering in biology
  • - Structural biology
  • - Robotics
  • - Tissue engineering
  • Computational biology/bioinformatics
