On Aug. 1 the NIH Division of
Nutrition Research Coordination will become the NIDDK Office of Nutrition Research.
The HNRIM database will be taken down by late March. Results of published studies can be found through the National Library of Medicine’s PubMed
database, and information about NIH-funded research projects can be found
in NIH’s Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tools website (RePORT).
Viewers and Players
What are viewers and players (plug-ins)?
Some HNRIM Web pages have links to files that may require software downloads—called “plug-ins”—to
help you properly view or play these files. Plug-ins are optional software additions that let you watch Internet movies
and animation, hear sound and music, and read special Adobe documents, for example.
How do I get the plug-ins I need?
The plug-ins below can be downloaded for free and will enable you to view or play all of the file formats on HNRIM’s
