The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is a federal agency that conducts biomedical research with the goal of reducing illness and lengthening life. Along the way, all kinds of scientific discoveries are made.

On this page you will find a collection of educational resources based on NIH research and developed to help you learn about science and your health.

From videos that will teach you about what causes color blindness, the parts of the brain, or how an X-ray works to illustrations of cell division, we have a wealth of resources available.

Please check back to the NIH page regularly for useful learning tools.
