About NINDS Division of Intramural Research

The present Intramural Research program of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) began in the early 1950's with research programs in basic neuroscience, neurology and neurosurgery. Today investigators in the NINDS intramural program conduct research in the basic, translational, and clinical neurosciences at the NINDS Bethesda, Maryland laboratories.
