The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is revitalizing its Strategic Plan to provide a framework for the research it will support over the next 5 years. On December 10, NIDA released a Request for Information (RFI) to seek broad public input on the research priorities to include in the plan.
NIDA published the current NIDA Strategic Plan in 2010. Since that time, the science of drug abuse and addiction has seen major advances. Therefore, the Institute recently started a planning process to develop a revitalized Strategic Plan for 2016–2020. NIDA seeks to harness the latest research technologies and apply them to the ever-evolving substance abuse landscape.
NIDA invites input from researchers in academia and industry, health care professionals, patient advocates and advocacy organizations, scientific or professional organizations, federal agencies, and other interested members of the public. To ensure consideration, your responses must be received by January 30, 2015, and should be emailed to NIDAOSPCPlanning@mail.nih.gov.
