About CIT

The Center for Information Technology (CIT) provides high-quality IT services and infrastructure systems to the National Institutes of Health (NIH)—the leading biomedical research institution in the United States.

What We Do

CIT enables over 45,000 members of the NIH community in more than 200 facilities across the country to perform world-class biomedical research. We collaborate with the NIH intramural community in the areas of computational bioscience, engineering, informatics, and statistics to help make biomedical discoveries that protect and improve our nation’s health.


How We Do It

As a service organization, CIT strives to listen to customers, empower staff, enable innovation, and provide value. These goals drive us to deliver reliable, first-rate IT infrastructure, services, and support to the NIH community and partnering organizations.


Our Organization

Our staff of over 1,000 is split between four offices with different areas of expertise that work together to support both CIT and NIH.
