The National Institute of Health, more commonly referred to as NIH, is an federal government agency operating under the United States Department of Health and Human Services that is greatly responsible for supporting the country's biomedical and health-related research studies.
The grants and programs of the NIH are all geared towards the realization of the its primary agency mission which 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 the burdens of illness and disability."
In accordance with this mission, the National Institute of Health has collaborated with the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) in an attempt to establish the Child Health Research Career Development Award Program.
The Child Health Research Career Development Award Program is specifically constituted to invite applications for institutional research career development (K12) programs that seek to support a national program for mentored investigators who have recently completed a postgraduate clinical training in a subspecialty area of Pediatrics and at the same time, are very much interested in building an independent research career.
