The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB)—one of 27 institutes, centers, and offices within the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which is an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services—has awarded IQ Solutions with a 3-year contract to provide Website and Digital Solutions services and support.)
This project places a team onsite at NIBIB’s offices in Bethesda to carry out new digital initiatives to forward NIBIB’s mission of disseminating information about research being conducted across their laboratories and promoting science education in bioengineering and bioimaging. The team will support the communication staff in creating and presenting content and will be working with the newly appointed Director to highlight NIBIB innovations with equally innovative web and mobile applications. IQ is committed to not only maintaining the website, but elevating the site’s usability and presence in organic search and social media.
NIBIB’s overarching work improves health by leading the development and accelerating the application of biomedical technologies. The Institute integrates the physical and engineering sciences with the life sciences to advance basic research and medical care, through research and development of new biomedical imaging and bioengineering techniques and devices to fundamentally improve the detection, treatment, and prevention of disease; enhancing existing imaging and bioengineering modalities; supporting related research in the physical and mathematical sciences; encouraging research and development in multidisciplinary areas; supporting studies to assess the effectiveness and outcomes of new biologics, materials, processes, devices, and procedures; developing technologies for early disease detection and assessment of health status; and developing advanced imaging and engineering techniques for conducting biomedical research at multiple scales.
“IQ Solutions is excited to initiate a new relationship with NIBIB, as we add the valuable work of this Institute to those of the many other Institutes across NIH where we are represented,” said Ileana Quintas, CEO and founder of IQ Solutions. “We look forward to devoting our proven expertise to advance NIBIB’s mission.”
IQ Solutions’ extensive work moving the flagship website of the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) to Drupal 8, as well as many years of work with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA; drugabuse.gov), exhibit IQ Solutions’ strong foundation in the Drupal space. Additionally, IQ has been supporting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) with their Drupal infrastructure within the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP).
