Arctic Health Research at the National Institutes of Health

The Arctic is considered a part of the Russia, Eurasia and the Arctic region.

NIH supports research on Arctic-related health issues through grants and contracts to non-Federal scientists, and through projects carried out by scientists within NIH laboratories and clinics.

Fogarty, as the designated focal point for Arctic issues at the NIH, addresses global health challenges through innovative and collaborative research and training programs, and advances the NIH mission through international partnerships. Fogarty helps forge bilateral and multilateral ties between and among governments, institutions, and scientists working on circumpolar issues.
