|Call for comments: NIH 5-year Strategic Plan
In response to a request from Congress, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is developing a 5-year NIH-wide Strategic Plan to advance its mission. The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) has invited TOS to comment as part of the NIH request for information seeking suggestions on a framework for this strategic plan. According to the letter from NIDDK Director Griffin P. Rodgers, MD, MACP, "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. The aim is to pursue crosscutting areas of research that span NIH's 27 Institutes, Centers, and Offices."
NIH will host a series of public webinars to further discuss the framework of their strategic plan, including a Q&A portion. The webinars will take place on the following dates:
