NIH -- Making a difference

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsThe people who choose to work at NIH do it because they care about creating new medical knowledge that advances human health. They have the right values and believe that they are making a difference -- which turns out to be true. They are.

ConsIn the current political climate, congressional support for all basic research and science has been on the decline, which is causing painful choices about what can be supported within NIH. Also, DHHS rules, especially around travel, make it hard to get things done.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe role of leadership is critical in these challenging times. Institute directors need to be much more visible and supportive as their staffs struggle to adjust to current changes. Clear planning is needed when deciding priorities in the face of scare resources.
