Definition The mission of the National Institute of N The mission of the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) is to promote and improve the health of individuals, families, communities, and populations. NINR supports and conducts clinical and basic research and research training on health and illness across the lifespan to build the scientific foundation for clinical practice, prevent disease and disability, manage and eliminate symptoms caused by illness, and improve palliative and end-of-life care. NINR's research programs, both extramural and intramural, incorporate a broad range of interdisciplinary approaches designed to promote scientific exploration that will lead to better health outcomes and health services. Such approaches include: clinical intervention studies; translational and implementation research; comparative effectiveness research; and analyses of cost, outcomes, and quality of care. As part of its commitment to advancing the health of all populations, NINR funds research that promotes health equity and eliminates health disparities by investigating the interplay of behavioral, biological, and environmental determinants of health and wellness, with a special emphasis on underserved and resource-limited communities. NINR also maintains a focus on basic research, seeking to improve knowledge of underlying biological systems, including the genetic and genomic contributions to symptoms and health conditions. NINR also places great emphasis on research training to cultivate the next generation of nurse scientists, as well as other biobehavioral researchers whose work advances nursing science. NINR-supported opportunities for research training are available for students beginning their research careers, as well as for scientists seeking to expand their research expertise. Among these opportunities, NINR provides support for trainees from underrepresented and disadvantaged backgrounds. NINR fosters collaborations with many other disciplines in areas of mutual interest such as long-term care for older adults, the special needs of women across the lifespan, genetic testing and counseling, biobehavioral aspects of the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases, and the impact of environmental influences on risk factors for chronic illnesses, among many others. for chronic illnesses, among many others.
