The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) is the newest of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) research institutes and centers and was formed in the United States when President Bill Clinton signed it into law on December 29, 2000.
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 techniques; advocating related research in the physical and mathematical sciences; encouraging research and development in multidisciplinary areas; 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.
