ABSTRACT

NIAID: Planning for the 21st Century   [open pdf - 882KB]

"NIAID [National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases] implements a planning process to develop and select initiatives that solicit research applications to address special opportunities, gaps, and needs. The aim of the process is to maximize public benefit by (1) paying close attention to current public health needs and anticipating changes in those needs; (2) capitalizing on scientific opportunity, especially on those with the prospect of reducing the burden of disease; (3) ensuring the capacity for future work by sustaining a broad array of basic research and nurturing scientific talent; (4) collaborating within and beyond NIH; and (5) using federal resources to leverage and complement the activities of other sectors. Being apprised of activities conducted by other government agencies, non-government organizations, as well as the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry, is crucial to setting meaningful priorities."
