Planning, and Strategic Initiatives
OAR Special InitiativesOAR identifies scientific areas that require focused attention and manages and facilitates multi-Institute and trans-Institute activities to address those needs.
OBSSR Scientific AreasLeadership is crucial at a time when exciting scientific opportunities, persistent public health needs, and emergent public health challenges face our nation.
Prevention Research at NIHThe Institutes and Centers have a broad portfolio of prevention research and training, as well as programs to disseminate the findings to scientists, health professionals, communities, and the public.
Interdisciplinary ResearchWith ORWH increasing understanding of the inter-relatedness and complexity of disease, the nature of scientific investigation is shifting to a multi-disciplinary collaborative approach.
Emerging Science & Tech AdvancesNew NIH Common Fund Programs to create a new center for the study of stem cells and to increase capacity to deal with global health issues
Identifying emerging scientific opportunities,
Rising public health challenges, and Scientific knowledge gaps that merit further research.
DPCPSI's mission includes identifying emerging scientific opportunities, rising public health challenges, and scientific knowledge gaps that merit further research. The Division plans and implements trans-NIH initiatives supported by the Common Fund and coordinates research related to AIDS, behavioral and social sciences, women's health, disease prevention, and research infrastructure.
High-Risk Research and Innovation a Top Priority
The NIH Common Fund's Roadmap invests millions of dollars to fund new high-risk research awards to encourage investigators to explore ideas that have the potential to propel biomedical research and speed the translation of research to improve health
