The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the nation's medical research agency, supporting scientific studies that turn discovery into health. The NIH is a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. For over a century, NIH scientists have paved the way for important discoveries to improve health and save lives. 

The NIH Hub is a central resource for the Stanford research community. Tools, links, and documents will assist researchers with submitting NIH proposals and understanding the lifecycles of different NIH award mechanisms.
