The National Institute of Health, more commonly referred to as NIH, is a federal government agency operating within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that is primarily responsible for supporting the country's biomedical and health-related research studies.

The grants and initiatives of the NIH are all geared towards the successful realization of 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 keeping with this mission, the National Institutes of Health has formed a partnership with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) in an attempt to establish the OMICS Technologies For Predictive Modeling of Infectious Diseases Program.
