Get Involved 

We want to hear from you. Our goal is to build an NHGRI strategic plan that is responsive to and resonates with the scientific community, while creating opportunities to improve human health for all populations. To do that, we are asking for input from all of our stakeholders. 

Throughout our strategic planning process, we will offer several ways for members of the public to provide input and to play a role in shaping our research agenda. As part of this process, we will be reaching out to a variety of communities and people with different perspectives. The list of current and upcoming opportunities will develop as the planning process evolves, so make sure to check back often.

Upcoming Opportunities

Town Halls

We plan to convene a series of town halls across the United States to capture input about our strategic planning process. The town halls will involve members of the scientific and medical communities, non-profit and private sectors, grantees, and members of the public. 

Laptop on podium
Satellite Meetings at Scientific Conferences

To take advantage of existing opportunities to hear from our stakeholders, we intend to convene satellite meetings at scientific conferences that members of the genomics community typically attend.
