National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (also The Academies) serve collectively as the scientific national academy for the United States. The National Academies comprises: the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), and the National Academy of Medicine (NAM). These program units act as the "working arm" of the Academies, which serves to collect, analyze, and share information through studies and reports. The Academies produce independent recommendations and policy reports by enlisting top scientists, engineers, health professionals, and other experts (not limited to those in Academies membership) to address the scientific and technical aspects of some of society's problems.
The Fellowship Office's Research Associateship Programs "promote excellence in scientific and technological research conducted by the U.S. government through the administration of programs offering graduate, postdoctoral, and senior level research opportunities at sponsoring federal laboratories and affiliated institutions." Some of those programs may pertain to various fields of laboratory and scientific informatics.
