Description

On July 1, 1968, President Lyndon Johnson issued an Executive Order establishing the John E. Fogarty International Center for Advanced Study in the Health Sciences at the National Institutes of Health. In the 35 years since-the span of a single generation-support for international biomedical and behavioral research and research training by the Fogarty International Center has grown from modest roots laid down at the outset - FIC's first year budget totaled $500,000-to a globe-encircling $64 million research, training, and capacity - building enterprise extending to over 100 countries and involving some 5,000 scientists in the U.S. and abroad.

Mission
