The Intramural Research Program (IRP) is NIH’s internal research program and the largest biomedical research institution in the world. From research labs to patients’ bedsides, IRP researchers advance biomedicine with the goal of improving health, reducing illness, and saving lives.
In the IRP’s Speaking of Science podcast, you’ll hear directly from scientists and clinicians across NIH Institutes and Centers who are tackling fascinating questions and challenges in biomedicine. Each Speaking of Science episode features a conversation with a different IRP researcher on topics such as:
- Molecular transformers, a class of proteins that could change the way we understand diseases like cancer, autoimmune disorders, and Alzheimer’s disease
- Why healthy volunteers are the unsung heroes of mental health research and why we need a shared understanding of what it means to be “healthy” to conduct safe, efficient, reliable research
- How dog genetics could unlock insights into health and diseases among our four-legged friends and their two-legged caregivers
