An amazing 5-minute video of the past, present and future of the NIH
National Institutes of Health | Overview
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...
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. Check out this video and find out why those who work here love it so much.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Summer Internship Program (SIP) provides students from high school through graduate/professional school an opportunity to conduct summer research at the NIH for 8-12 weeks in biomedical, behavioral, and social science health-related areas. This video provides information about NIH; SIP and its subprograms (NIH-Amgen Scholars, CCSEP, GSOAR and HiSTEP); and the SIP application process, including when to apply, elements of the application, the selection process, tips for searching for NIH research groups and finding research mentors, and guidelines for interviewing. You can learn more about SIP at: https://www.training.nih.gov/programs/sip. Contact us at Summer_Postbac_Quest@mail.nih.gov if you have questions. For more tips on how to find an NIH men...

The National Institutes of Health calls the beautiful city of Bethesda, Maryland home. Check out why this unique city houses some of the top people in the medical field.
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.
Dr. Carl Dieffenbach, Director of the Division of AIDS at NIH: "If you are durably virologicially suppressed you will not transmit to your partner... I'll say this again, for somebody who is in a discordant couple, if the person [with HIV] is virologically suppressed, 'durably' --means there is no virus in your system, hasn't been for several months -- your chance of acquiring HIV from that person is ZERO, let's be clear about that: ZERO. If that person the next day stops therapy for two weeks and rebounds, your chance goes up. That's why we talk about durable viral suppression. ...You're as virologically suppressed as good as your adherence. That's the message."

Google Tech Talks January, 8 2008 NIH awards more than $500M/yr for grants to researchers pursuing research in biomedical informatics. This includes computation, simulation, modeling, and, increasingly, work on storage, retrieval, curation, and analysis of massive amounts of data needed for biomedical research. Dr. Marron will outline the investment strategy for making awarding funds in this broad area of research. Speaker: Dr. Michael Marron Mike Marron is the director of the Biomedical Technology Division of the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). His group focuses on funding development and collaborative sharing of cutting-edge technologies ranging from new imaging techniques using advanced light sources (e.g. synchrotrons) to com...

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
