Begun as a one-room Laboratory of Hygiene 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 U.S.
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.
The NIH is one of eight health agencies of the Public Health Services which, in turn, is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Comprised of 25 separate Institutes and Centers, NIH has 75 buildings on more than 300 acres in Bethesda, MD. From a total of about $300 in 1887, the NIH budget has grown to more than $15.6 billion in 1999.
