About the NIH Almanac
Published annually, the NIH Almanac contains pertinent facts about the
National Institutes of Health - the Federal government's principal medical
research agency. As of December 1, 2001, NIH was composed of 27 Institutes and Centers. Of these, 24 receive
direct appropriations from the U.S. Congress to award research grants
and support scientific programs. The remaining three include the Warren
Grant Magnuson Clinical Center (clinicalcenter.nih.gov/)
- a combined research hospital and laboratory complex on the NIH campus
- the Center for Scientific Review (www.csr.nih.gov), which supports the scientific
review of grant applications, and the Center for Information Technology
provides, coordinates, and manages information technology for the NIH.
