Abstract

With its unique system of intramural and extramural research programs, funding for academic and corporate product development, along with its supporting foundations, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has created a vibrant public “innovation ecosystem” that has changed not only the face of healthcare, but has also led to the creation of the biotech industry in the U.S.   Whether your interest in the overall healthcare environment is scientific, medical, educational or commercial, there is something here for you.
