In January, the NIH National Center for Human Genome Research (NCHGR) was granted institute status and a new name --National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI). The new status will facilitate collaboration with other institutes, give NHGRI’s director equal standing with other directors, and allow NHGRI to operate under the same legislative authorities as other NIH research institutes. The new name is thought to reflect more accurately the growth and accomplishments of the former NCHGR, which was established 7 years ago to carry out the NIH role in the Human Genome Project.
