National Advisory Board on Medical Rehabilitation Research (NABMRR)

May 4, 2020


In support of the Office of Personnel Management guidance to strengthen our efforts to protect the federal workforce to ensure continuity of operations, NIH is urging that all large meetings and symposia that are not mission critical and are scheduled to be held at NIH facilities or organized by NIH over the next 30 days either be held virtually using tele/videoconferencing services, postponed, or cancelled.

This workshop will be held as a virtual meeting only, using tele/videoconferencing services. There will be no in-person attendance. More information will be available soon. Please contact Dr. Ralph Nitkin at with any questions.


National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (NCMRR), NICHD


Webinar; more information to come


The NIH Amendments Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-613) established NCMRR within NICHD. The same Act created 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.

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 Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) regulations. For more information on FACA, visit
