The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, is one of 27 research institutes and centers that comprise the National Institutes of Health. The mission of the NIEHS is to reduce the burden of human illness and disability by understanding how the environment influences the development and progression of human disease. The NIEHS traces its roots to 1966, when the US Surgeon General announced the establishment of the Division of Environmental Health Sciences within the NIH. In 1969, the division was elevated to full NIH institute status. Since then, the NIEHS has evolved to its present status as a world leader in environmental health sciences, with an impressive record of important scientific accomplishments and a proud history of institutional achievements and growth.
