NICHD researchers have made significant contributions to science and medical care. Their work has yielded safe and effective vaccines for childhood infections, developed cutting-edge molecular imaging technologies, and provided new insights into the risks of certain environmental exposures among populations such as pregnant women, among other advances.

NICHD researchers on the NIH campus and at other U.S. locations conduct innovative research on human development throughout the lifespan. These programs also serve as a fertile training ground for pre- and postdoctoral physicians and scientists.
