Columbus provides integral, on-site support in a broad range of health services disciplines. Our experts serve leading research institutions in the areas of biomedical research, health science studies, clinical analytics and project management. We enable this work with health-related IT services, while providing guidance on health policy and regulatory compliance.

We support 18 institutes and centers at NIH with over 100 subject-matter experts. This diverse team includes doctors, nurses, research scientists, data analysts, database administrators, budget analysts, web developers and grant researchers.

Together, they expand NIH’s capacity to conduct accurate, efficient research; strengthen compliance; and save operational costs in public health missions.
