As part of the National Institutes of Health, the National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (NICHD) was created "to investigate the broad aspects of human development as a means of understanding developmental disabilities." Today, NICHD conducts and supports research on all the stages of human development. Their homepage is a model of accessibility, as the information available here is presented in a way that is both easy to navigate and visually stimulating. Visitors can make their way through sections that include "Health Information", "Research", and "Funding". The "Health Information" section features an A to Z guide to health and human development topics, along with information on ongoing clinical research and a publications area that includes documents for everyone from concerned parents to health care professionals. Moving on, the site also contains materials on funding for training, research, and career development. While the site doesn't currently offer RSS feeds, visitors can email any page of note to friends or colleagues.
