NIH’s Commitment to Basic Science

Great to see this article from the National Institutes of Health’s Mike Lauer confirming the Institution’s support for basic research!

“NIH’s mission is to seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce illness and disability. This fundamental knowledge is obtained through research that addresses a specific health need, as well as through basic research that supports a broad understanding of human behavior and biology.”
