NINR’s intramural research program conducts science that complements NINR’s overall research mission, while leveraging resources unique to the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland.

The intramural research program is currently focused on increasing its efforts in research that integrate a multilevel understanding of the impact of health determinants, from the community level to the laboratory bench, with areas such as community-based, multilevel, and translational research. Like the rest of NINR’s research portfolio, this approach to science takes advantage of nursing science’s unique ability to address people’s lives and living conditions to improve health and health equity.
