2022 NIH Director’s Awards Posted

An NIH Director’s Award is the most prestigious honor at NIH to recognize the achievements of institutes, centers and offices. Each nomination undergoes a rigorous review process that includes each IC director, the NIH awards review committee and selection by the NIH director for special recognition. 

NIH has highlighted the remarkable accomplishments of more than 1,900 awardees from the 2021 calendar year in a virtual format. The awards site, developed in partnership with IC leadership across the agency, features a video with Dr. Lawrence Tabak, performing the duties of the NIH director, and Julie Berko, chief people officer and director of the Office of Human Resources, discussing the meaning of the NIH Director’s Award. 

NIH’ers are invited to congratulate the 2022 recipients on their outstanding contributions in research, administration, mission support, mentorship, clinical care, Commissioned Corps, work/life and well-being, equity, diversity and inclusion—all in support of the NIH mission.
