NIH is made up of 27 Institutes and Centers, each with a specific research agenda, often focusing on particular diseases or body systems.

Note: The organization's full name is followed by 1-its acronym; and 2-where applicable, the two-letter code used to identify it as the first major-level subdivision of the funding organization. The two-letter code is used in each funded project grant- number, e.g., in 5R01EY000000, EY= National Eye Institute).
