NIH Tech Day



The nation's medical research agency - the National Institutes of Health (NIH) - has a massive campus running cutting edge research and development, supported heavily by advanced technology and innovation. With this comes a unique audience of scientists and personnel with special applications

Reach them face-to-face at NIH Tech Day! All personnel on the NIH campus receive FBC's wide-reaching promotions for this exciting event. Now's the time to show them that your product or service is what they've been missing.

NIH Mission and Goals:
NIH’s mission is to seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and to apply that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life and reduce illness and disability.

To carry out this mission, NIH’s goals are: to foster fundamental creative discoveries, innovative research strategies and their applications as a basis for ultimately protecting and improving health; to develop, maintain and renew scientific human and physical resources that will ensure the nation’s capability to prevent disease; to expand the knowledge base in medical science and associated sciences in order to enhance the nation’s economic well-being and ensure a continued high return on the public investment in research; and to exemplify and promote the highest level of scientific integrity, public accountability and social responsibility in the conduct of science.

Organization:
NIH is an operating division of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), responsible for helping the Department realize its strategic goal of advancing scientific knowledge and innovation.

To accomplish this, NIH consists of 27 Institutes and Centers (ICs), along with Program Offices, which collectively are referred to as ICOs. These ICOs have individual strategic plans and specific research agendas, which are aligned with the legislative mandates that are often related to specific diseases or body systems. To support these missions, most of NIH’s ICOs receive a specific appropriation from Congress, and support research and research training through extramural funding awarded to universities, academic health centers and other research institutions. Most also conduct research and research training in their own intramural laboratories, the majority of which are located on the NIH’s main campus in Bethesda, MD.

From the NIH Strategic Plan:

From FY 2016-2020, NIH will support a broad, balanced portfolio of basic research across a wide range of scientific disciplines, a portfolio that will be complemented by vigorous support of innovations in technology and data science. By maintaining and strengthening its already impressive foundation of fundamental science, biomedical research will be poised to identify and capitalize upon potential opportunities for revolutionary breakthroughs with the potential for preventing, treating and curing disease.

Technological innovations will also be instrumental for research aimed at making advances in the early detection, diagnosis and prevention of disease. At the forefront of this effort will be the NIH-led PMI cohort. Taking advantage of emerging biomedical tools and technologies, such as availability of electronic health records, DNA sequencing and exposure monitoring, PMI’s longitudinal research cohort of 1 million or more U.S. volunteers will establish a base of scientific knowledge that can be used to develop prevention and screening strategies tailored to individuals at the most opportune times across the course of their lives.

PMI will also take advantage of the latest methods and approaches in data science, including advances in large-scale databases, computational tools and -omics methodologies to characterize individuals. In addition, PMI will offer researchers the ability to test whether mobile technologies are useful in adapting preventive strategies to individuals’ needs and preferences, enhancing delivery of interventions and improving monitoring of compliance and outcomes. PMI will pioneer efforts to merge, integrate and analyze data from a wide variety of sources with implications for prevention, including basic biological data, health status NIH-Wide Strategic Plan 26 information from electronic health records, individual data on environmental exposures, geospatial data on community environmental exposures and so on.
