Agency Feedback CommentNot ApplicableNarrative Description*The National Institutes of Health (NIH), a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the nation’s medical research agency—making important discoveries that improve health and save lives.Thanks in large part to NIH-funded medical research, Americans today are living longer and healthier. Life expectancy in the United States has jumped from 47 years in 1900 to 78 years as reported in 2009, and disability in people over age 65 has dropped dramatically in the past 3 decades. In recent years, nationwide rates of new diagnoses and deaths from all cancers combined have fallen significantly. More than 80% of the NIH's budget goes to more than 300,000 research personnel at over 3,000 universities and research institutions. In addition, about 6,000 scientists work in NIH’s own laboratories, most of which are on the NIH main campus in Bethesda, Maryland. The main campus is also home to the NIH Clinical Center, the largest hospital in the world totally dedicated to clinical research.Successful biomedical research depends on the talent and dedication of the scientific workforce. NIH supports many innovative training programs and funding mechanisms that foster scientific creativity and exploration. The goal is to strengthen our nation’s research capacity, broaden our research base, and inspire a passion for science in current and future generations of researchers. The Office of Intramural Research (OIR) is responsible for oversight and coordination of intramural research, training, and technology transfer conducted within the laboratories and clinics of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). NIH's intramural facilities are located on the main campus in Bethesda, MD, as well as in Research Triangle Park, NC (NIEHS); Baltimore, MD (NIDA, NIA, and NHGRI); Frederick, MD (NCI); Hamilton, MT (NIAID); and Phoenix, AZ (NIDDK). Organizationally, the individual laboratories and sections answer to the 27 Institutes and Centers of NIH which conduct applied and basic biomedical research in particular disease or subject areas.
