Founded in 1887, the National Institutes of Health is one of the world's foremost medical research centers, and the focal point for medical research in the U.S. The NIH, comprised of 25 separate Institutes and Centers, is one of eight health agencies of the Public Health Service which, in turn, is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The goal of NIH research is to acquire new knowledge to help prevent, detect, diagnose, and treat disease and disability, from the rarest genetic disorder to the common cold.
