An amazing 5-minute video of the past, present and future of the NIH
VICTORY: Following an intensive yearlong PETA campaign, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has announced that it’s ending the cruel psychological experiments on baby monkeys conducted by Stephen Suomi, who led this horrendous project at NIH for more than 30 years. His laboratory is being closed down, and he will no longer be involved in any experiments on animals: http://www.peta.org/blog/nih-ends-baby-monkey-experiments/. Shocking videos obtained by PETA show the National Institutes of Health (NIH) terrorizing baby monkeys it has intentionally bred to be mentally ill, wasting more than $30 million in taxpayer money. See the shocking facts here: http://investigations.peta.org/nih-baby-monkey-experiments/. Each year, dozens of monkeys are born at this NIH facility, many intentional...
National Institutes of Health | Overview
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. The National Institutes of Health has one of the most unique campuses in the nation.

agingresearch.org/rally This video calls on President Obama, Health and Human Services Secretary Burwell, and members of Congress to work together to increase funding in support of the valuable work of the National Institutes of Health. It features real people who are passionate about the difference medical research has made in their lives; they are living proof of the impact of the NIH. It was introduced at this year's Rally for Medical Research on September 17. The Alliance encourages everyone who watches this video to share it with others. It's more important than ever that the president and Congress support the work of the NIH. National Institutes of Health=National Institutes of Hope
This NIH film exams how real life women surgeons match up to their often dramatacized television counterparts.

The video chronicles the CCSEP experience through the eyes of a participant. the opinions within this video are unscripted from real participants. The purpose of CCSEP is to increase the number of community college students who participate in the NIH Summer Internship Program (SIP). The long-term goal is to increase the number of community college students who transfer to four-year colleges and universities and consider careers in the biomedical sciences. In addition to performing full-time research in a laboratory or on a project at the NIH, CCSEP interns will meet each week as a group to participate in workshops and courses focused on the development of academic and professional skills in preparation for careers in health care and in social, behavioral, and biomedical research.
From the cradle to the grave
There are roads for us all
that we'll find, and follow to the end
Leading upwards to a place in the stars,
ten million miles away...
There's a path called Tenemos Roads
Everything happening there is history,
pictures of ages before we were born
But the sound of men in battle makes me cry
out in my dreams.
Hearing the sounds of battle far away
and the trumpets calling
marks the end of time of peace
in Tenemos Roads
Things are changing, directed by the men
who, tired of making love, make war
If you've settled down on this world, it's a good place
Men have made their homes on the land, while the fishes
all live in the sea
But although that's alright for them,
I prefer to be somewhere that's slightly more hot
There's a place a bit nearer the sun that I like quite a
I will build a home on Tenemos Roads
I will build a home on Tenemos Roads
