NIH Advisory Board Recommends Merging Two Institutes

Oct 5, 2010

The National Institutes of Health's (NIH) Scientific Management Review Board, which is charged with examining NIH's organizational structure, has voted to advise Director Francis Collins to merge two institutes: the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. If Collins agrees to the merger, Congress would have 180 days to weigh in before the merger could go forward.
