National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK)
The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) conducts, supports, and coordinates research on many of the most serious diseases affecting public health. The Institute supports clinical research on the diseases of internal medicine and related subspecialty fields, as well as many basic science disciplines.
The Institute, approximately the fifth largest at the National Institutes of Health, is organized broadly into Intramural and Extramural divisions and offices. The Intramural division houses the scientists and labs that work within the NIDDK to conduct research.
The Extramural divisions and offices fund and coordinate research and research training activities at universities, colleges, non-profit organizations, and businesses.See more
