Establishing a 2020 Vision for Genomics

Strategic Planning Process

In February 2018 the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) launched a strategic planning effort to establish a 2020 vision for genomics aimed at accelerating scientific and medical breakthroughs. During the development of the strategic vision, NHGRI identified paradigm-shifting areas of genomics that will expand the field into new frontiers and enable novel applications to human health and disease. To ensure the widespread relevance of our strategic vision, we collected input from the scientific, medical and diverse public communities through >50 events, including town halls, dedicated workshops, conference sessions and webinars. Visit the news and events list to learn more about the events we held and to access the event summaries.
