Annually, NIH invests $31.2 billion in biomedical research for the health of the American people. Over 80% of that budget is awarded as competitive grants to the “extramural” world of research, including universities, medical schools, and other research organizations here in the US and abroad.

Approximately 10% of the NIH budget supports “intramural” research projects that are conducted by nearly 6,000 scientists at the NIH.
