Research at NHGRI
The Division of Intramural Research at the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) plans and conducts a broad program of laboratory and clinical research to translate genome research into a greater understanding of human genetic disease. The DIR acts as a focal point at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for genome research and maintains core facilities that serve as a resource for the entire NIH intramural research community. It evaluates research efforts and establishes intramural program priorities; allocates funds, space and personnel ceilings to ensure maximum utilization of available resources in the attainment of NHGRI objectives; and integrates new research activities into the program structure.
The division also collaborates with other NIH institutes, centers and external research institutions; maintains an awareness of national and international research efforts in relevant program areas; and advises the director and staff on areas of science and intramural research programs of interest to NHGRI.
