Medical Conditions
We regret that we cannot answer medical questions via the NIH Web site. Please consult a medical professional about your health condition.Our Health Information pages are designed to offer pointers to the wide variety of health conditions studied here at NIH. These pages also include a listing of Information Clearinghouses operated by the Institutes and Offices -- people you can talk to for further information. We've found that a large percentage of the questions about NIH on-line resources can be answered by browsing the listings in this area or by using the NIH Search Engine.

The information and e-mail services on this Web site cannot provide personalized medical advice to individuals about their condition or treatment. This site provides users with information to better understand their health and their diagnosed disorders. The resources on this site should not be used as a substitute for professional medical care and we urge you to work with your medical care providers for answers to your personal health questions. We also do not rate or provide referrals to physicians or health care facilities. Such activities are usually handled by State or local Governments.

If you have questions that relate specifically to foods, medications, or over-the-counter drugs, you should visit the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) website.

Research Funding
If you have any questions about grants, extramural funding opportunities or the application process, please explore the Funding Opportunities area or send E-mail directly to GrantsInfo.
