The NIH Intramural Research Program (IRP) recently launched a new website. For the first time, the IRP has a unified website that relays its broad scope and presence on the global biomedical and behavioral research scene.

The new site complements NIH efforts to reach a broad audience that includes scientists outside NIH. The site organizes IRP research by focus area, such as cell biology, immunology, and clinical research. The Research in Action section highlights a few NIH labs and researchers and will be updated regularly with new features. Recent news releases and a sampling of peer-reviewed articles appear in a section called In the News, while the Careers and Research Training sections describe employment and training opportunities at NIH. The NIH Catalyst, the IRP's newsletter, is also featured on the new site.

The site provides a mix of original content along with links to articles and videos from NIH's institutes and centers. Eventually, it will expand to include, among other elements, a page for each principal investigator.
