NIH Reorganization

NIH Reorganization As part of a major reorganization, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has launched the new National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences and announced 2 new divisions at the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS). The new center will operate with a budget of $575 million under the leadership of acting director Thomas R. Insel, MD, and acting deputy director Kathy Hudson, PhD, until a permanent director is selected, according to an announcement from NIH. Most of the budget for the new center comes from the closure of the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) and other programs housed in NIH. Key initiatives of the new center include an effort to identify and fill treatment gaps, Clinical and Translational Science Awards, the Cures Acceleration Network, a Food and Drug Administration–NIH interagency partnership to accelerate the development and evaluation of therapies, and programs to study and develop therapies for rare diseases. Also as part of the NIH reorganization, NIGMS will gain 2 new divisions to administer training and biotechnology programs formerly overseen by the NCRR. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
