About the Division
The Division of Intramural Population Health Research, formerly the Division of Epidemiology, Statistics, and Prevention Research, has had a longstanding presence within the NICHD, at the National Institutes of Health. The Division first appeared on the NICHD's organizational chart in 1967, only 5 years after the establishment of the Institute. The Division was first established as the Epidemiology and Biometry Branch, and was later renamed the Epidemiology and Biometry Research Program in 1970, then the Division of Prevention Research in 1990, and the Division of Epidemiology, Statistics, and Prevention Research in 1991. Following a reorganization within the NICHD in 2012, the name was changed to the Division of Intramural Population Health Research to better describe the Division’s research focus. Dr. Buck Louis serves as the inaugural Director for DIPHR.
