Office of Research Services (ORS) is often the first touch-point for employees, researchers, patients and visitors at the National Institutes of Health. We are the police, the immigration specialists, the animal caretakers, the security guards, the shuttle drivers, the food service workers, and much more. We are the people who clear the way so NIH’s mission can move forward seamlessly. Our programs and services keep the NIH community safe, facilitate critical biomedical research and discovery, and encourage employee wellness and work/life balance. When we are successful, our work goes unnoticed because everything goes as expected – hazards are removed and fires are prevented, radiation exposure is monitored, mail is quickly delivered, and workplace accidents are prevented. All across NIH, you will find ORS staff making the agency mission come alive and ensuring everyone has a safe and positive experience at NIH.
In the pages that follow are a few accomplishments in 2017 that demonstrate our successes and the ways we partner with the NIH research community to advance human health.
