NIH-Wide Strategic Plan: Planning
In 2015, NIH created a working group to develop a framework outlining the direction of the NIH-Wide Strategic Plan. This working group, which was composed of representatives from NIH Institutes, Centers, and Offices within the Office of the Director, was led by NIH Principal Deputy Director Lawrence A. Tabak, D.D.S., Ph.D. To gather feedback from the community on the direction of the plan, the working group coordinated numerous outreach activities:
- Three webinars were held in August 2015 and drew nearly 750 participants.
- A Request for Information (RFI) on a framework for the NIH-Wide Strategic Plan solicited over 450 responses. NIH conducted an analysis of the input on the RFI and published a report.
- Discussions with more than 20 National Advisory Councils, including the Advisory Committee to the NIH Director, were held in the fall of 2015.
The framework below, which informed the development of the NIH-Wide Strategic Plan, identifies areas of opportunity that apply across biomedicine and unifying principles to guide NIH in supporting the biomedical research enterprise.
