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
