NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH
The National Institutes of Health constitutes the primary research arm of the Public Health Service. It is made up of the following nine individual institutes, each with responsibility for a particular disease category: National Institute of General Medical Sciences, National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, National Cancer Institute, National Institute of Mental Health, National Heart Institute, National Institute of Dental Research, National Institute of Arthritis and Metabolic Diseases, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and the National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Blindness. There are also three program divisions, the Division of Biologics Standards, the Division of Research Facilities and Resources, and the Division of Computer Research and Technology.
Operations of the Institutes and Divisions are divided between grant programs largely for support of research and for training of individuals and activities performed directly or through contracts by the Service. A portion of the funds from each of the operating appropriations is pooled through a management fund to provide central services for all Institutes.
A distribution of obligations for the National Institutes of Health by major activity follows (in thousands of dollars):

Institute together with an explanation of any unique activities.
Grants Research.-Grants are made to institutions and to individuals to undertake research projects in the medical and biological sciences. Grants are awarded by the Surgeon General on the basis of merit after review and recommendation by scientifically competent study groups and the appropriate national advisory council.
Fellowships.-Grants are made to individuals in order to increase the research manpower in the medical sciences. There are several different types of awards such as predoctoral, postdoctoral, special, research career awards, and foreign research fellowships, each designed to develop research talent. Fellowships are reviewed by specialty boards and advisory councils and are awarded on the basis of merit.
Training. Grants are made to institutions to develop or support training programs in the medical sciences and to individual trainees to enable them to undertake special training at an institution of their choice. Awards are made to both graduates and undergraduates. Both institutional and individual grants are awarded by the Surgeon General on the basis of merit after review by an appropriate advisory council.
State control programs.-Funds are provided to States and Territories on a formula basis for strengthening State and local clinical and educational services in mental health areas.
Direct operations-Research.-The National Institutes of Health conduct research activities largely within the framework of the various specific Institutes, directed to the disease categories represented thereby.
Collaborative studies.-Categorical research programs are conducted by investigators in collaboration with other Federal institutions and non-Federal institutions through direct operations or contracts in Bethesda and in dispersed geographical locations.
Professional and technical assistance.-Professional guidance and leadership in mental health activities are provided to States and other interested organizations in the knowledge and application of research findings through the provision of consultative services, demonstrations, training, field studies, and investigations of improved methodology.
Review and approval of grants.-Applications for research grants, fellowships, and training grants are reviewed for merit by panels of private professional and lay persons distinguished in the field of medical science. Staff of the National Institutes of Health provide the administrative support and executive direction for the national advisory councils and study sections.
The Office of International Research, the Division of Research Facilities and Resources, and the Division of Computer Research and Technology are financed from the appropriation General research and services.
There is an appropriation for each of the other nine Institutes and for the Division of Biologics Standards which is responsible for the Public Health regulations pertaining to control and preparation of biological products and conduct of related research.
