About

Mission

The mission of the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) is to improve health by leading the development and accelerating the application of biomedical technologies. The Institute is committed to integrating the physical and engineering sciences with the life sciences to advance basic research and medical care. This is achieved through: research and development of new biomedical imaging and bioengineering techniques and devices to fundamentally improve the detection, treatment, and prevention of disease; enhancing existing imaging and bioengineering modalities; supporting related research in the physical and mathematical sciences; encouraging research and development in multidisciplinary areas; supporting studies to assess the effectiveness and outcomes of new biologics, materials, processes, devices, and procedures; developing technologies for early disease detection and assessment of health status; and developing advanced imaging and engineering techniques for conducting biomedical research at multiple scales

Strategic Plan

Today's Vision, Tomorrow's Health Care - NIBIB Strategic Plan 2012-2016

The Institute has developed goals and strategies, detailed in this strategic plan, that are designed to maximize impact on human health. This framework will guide NIBIB’s direction over the next 5 years and will help determine how the Institute allocates resources to support and enhance scientific research.

In implementing this strategic plan, NIBIB will seek continuous stakeholder input and respond as warranted. The Institute will further leverage its intellectual and financial resources through joint ventures with the private sector and with other Federal agencies.

This plan is not a static document, but a multiyear process that will be implemented over time, and it will be revisited periodically. Goals and strategies will continue to evolve through NIBIB’s iterative planning and evaluation process, conducted in conjunction with its Advisory Council and its stakeholders.
