For more than 100 years, the NIH Intramural Research Program (IRP) has attracted huge numbers of scientists with world-renowned expertise and a passion for improving human health. However, the kinds of game-changing discoveries made in the IRP require more than just scientific talent. Whether they are working on life-saving personalized cancer treatments or new vaccines to combat deadly infectious diseases, researchers need access to cutting-edge technologies that allow them to investigate the mysteries of biology.

For this reason, the IRP maintains a vast collection of research resources that can be utilized by any investigator at NIH. From advanced microscopes for producing detailed images of the tiniest components of our bodies to the latest genetic technologies for precisely manipulating DNA, IRP researchers have access to any tool they may need to support their work. The shared nature of these resources facilitates the kind of collaboration across research disciplines that enables researchers in the IRP to answer biomedical questions that no individual or lab could solve alone.
