NIH: Office of Disease Prevention


Learn About NIH Disease Prevention-Related Programs, Offices, and Divisions

NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) coordinate and conduct research activities relevant to disease prevention. Programs, offices, and divisions within the ICs are a useful resource for identifying NIH research priorities and opportunities.

Program officials—within the programs, offices, and divisions listed below—help manage the research portfolios of their individual ICs. They can provide investigators with information about IC portfolios and funding, guidance on research progress and trends, and feedback on proposed projects. For information on how to consult with NIH program officials before submitting an application, visit Applying for NIH Funding.
