The Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) creates and manages alliances with public and private institutions in support of the lifesaving mission of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the world’s premier medical research agency. The organization works with federal and private-sector partners to accelerate biomedical research and strategies against diseases and health concer...ns in the United States and across the globe. FNIH organizes and administers research projects; supports education and training of new researchers; organizes educational events and symposia and administers funds supporting a wide range of health issues.
Established by Congress, the FNIH is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Unique in its mandate, the FNIH builds partnerships that enable ambitious, multi-pronged attacks on problems—approaches that otherwise might be impossible to mount by a single organization alone. The FNIH leads global initiatives that bring together multiple NIH Institutes and Centers, international aid groups, disease-specific not-for-profit organizations, universities and companies to tackle concerns from Alzheimer’s disease to lung cancer to HIV/AIDS. Other examples of projects within the FNIH portfolio are the administration of a new partnership among government, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and disease advocates to confront the daunting issues of the years and billions of dollars it takes to bring new drugs to market, on-going events for lectures and lecture series that help disseminate vital research knowledge and new findings, and training programs for researchers early in their careers.
Today, biomedical science is coming to greater understandings of the mechanisms of many of the world’s most severe health challenges—a wealth of knowledge holding tremendous promise for better disease and disability treatment and prevention. The FNIH is poised to help usher in that future. Every stakeholder—individuals, companies, universities, agencies and advocacy groups—plays a role; the FNIH is dedicated to bringing them together for progress.
