Led by Scientific Director Dr. Ann Cashion, NINR's Division of Intramural Research (DIR) is dedicated to conducting basic and clinical research on the interactions among molecular mechanisms underlying a single symptom or cluster of symptoms and environmental influences on individual health outcomes. It encompasses the individual variability inherent in symptoms associated with digestive disorders, cancer related fatigue, traumatic brain injury, and post-traumatic stress disorders as well as clinical interventions to alleviate these symptoms.
