National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (NCMRR), NICHD
The NIH Amendments Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-613) established the NCMRR within the NICHD. The same Act created the NABMRR (also called the National Center for medical Rehabilitation Advisory Board) to advise the Directors of NIH, NICHD, and NCMRR on matters and policies relating to the Center's research programs.
The NABMRR includes members from a variety of scientific fields, professions, and locations relevant to medical rehabilitation and disability communities; members are nominated and approved in compliance with FACA regulations.
