Located at the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD, intramural scientists can make full use of the special, if not unique, opportunities afforded by the NIH. Among these are the extensive human resources that facilitate collaboration among experts who possess widely different skills; the resources to perform clinical research that is closely integrated with laboratory work; and relatively stable funding which permits investments in long-term, and even risky, projects.
