Highlighting the impact of NIH research
NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins recently unveiled a new section of the NIH website—Impact of NIH Research. This section features how NIH-supported biomedical research influences our nation’s health, economy, and communities.
The NIA is committed to communicating the importance of NIH-supported research to many different audiences, and invites grantees and others interested in scientific research to do the same. The Impact of NIH Research website offers tools and resources that include:
- new NIH fact sheets;
- reports presenting the economic value of NIH-supported research;
- an NIH Impact PowerPoint set designed for use by researchers or research advocates;
- a collection of news reports, commentaries, Congressional testimony, and videos that point to facts about biomedical research; and
- convenient, lay-friendly links to state-specific funding information available through NIH’s RePORT site and the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB).
