Give your feedback on the NIH-wide Strategic Plan

NIH Building 1The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is currently developing an NIH-wide Strategic Plan. The goal of this 5-year plan is to outline a vision for biomedical research that ultimately extends healthy life and reduces illness and disability.

NIH senior leadership and staff have developed a proposed framework for the strategic plan that identifies areas of opportunity across all biomedicine and unifying principles to guide NIH's support of the biomedical research enterprise. The aim is to pursue crosscutting areas of research that span NIH's 27 institutes, centers and offices.

NIH is inviting the public to review the framework in the NIH Request for Information (RFI) and on the NIH website, and to provide feedback via the RFI submission site by August 16.

NIH is encouraging stakeholder organizations (e.g., patient advocacy groups, professional societies) to submit a single response reflective of the views of the organization/membership as a whole.

NIH hosted webinars to gather additional input. The webinars were held on:
  • Wednesday, August 5 at 3:00 - 4:30 p.m. Eastern
