NIDA Invites Public Input on Strategic Plan, Drug Abuse Research Priorities

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is now accepting public comments on its Strategic Plan, which outlines a framework for the research it will support over the next five years.

NIDA published the current NIDA Strategic Plan in 2010. Since that time, the science of drug abuse and addiction has seen major advances, and the Institute has embarked on a planning process to develop a revitalized Strategic Plan for 2016–2020. NIDA said in a statement to accompany its Request for Information that it seeks “to harness the latest research technologies and apply them to the ever-evolving substance abuse landscape.”

NIDA invites broad public 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. Responses must be received by January 30, 2015, and should be emailed to NIDAOSPCPlanning@mail.nih.gov.
