Foundation for the National Institutes of Health

Our Cause

The Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) procures funding and manages alliances with public and private institutions in support of the mission of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the premier medical research agency. The FNIH and its partners successfully generate and implement new research models that lower the cost and accelerate the progress of biomedical research. Because of our daily exposure to scientists, business leaders, donors and physicians- and advocates who represent patients- the FNIH is at the confluence of new ideas.  This affords us a unique perspective, one that empowers the FNIH to envision critical biomedical research needs.

The FNIH, a preeminent leader in the design and execution of public-private partnerships, has created hundreds of cross-discipline partnerships whose initiatives have generated new ideas, overcome obstacles and achieved groundbreaking research results. The FNIH supports a wide range of biomedical projects- from $1,000 patient-care initiatives to multi-million-dollar global research programs. A number of FNIH-developed models remain gold standards for how academic, industry and government partners confront serious diseases.  Groundbreaking initiatives managed by or involving the FNIH include the Alzheimers Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI), the Biomarkers Consortium and the Accelerating Medicines Partnership (AMP). The FNIH also supports the next generation of great medical scientists through the NIH Medical Research Scholars Program.
