The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is the lead federal agency supporting research on drug use and its consequences. Our mission is to advance science on the causes and consequences of drug use and addiction and to apply that knowledge to improve individual and public health. In alignment with this mission, NIDA developed a draft outline for the FY 2021-2025 Strategic Plan to communicate a vision for advancing the Institute’s mission over the next five years.
As part of the strategic planning process, NIDA has issued a Request for Information (RFI) for feedback on an initial outline of the plan, which includes both Scientific Goals and Cross-cutting themes.
We would like to hear from the community of researchers, clinicians, patients, policymakers, members of the public, and other stakeholders. We will review and consider the comments that we receive as we draft the full Strategic Plan. We hope you will take a few minutes to share your perspectives, and to encourage interested stakeholders to share theirs as well.
The RFI can be found at this link: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-DA-20-059.html. Comments will be accepted through August 7, 2020.
You may submit your suggestions via email to: NIDAStrategicPlan@nida.nih.gov
Thank you for your support of NIDA’s research mission.
