NIDCD Director requests ideas for a new strategic plan

Dear NIDCD-funded researchers,
 
As the new director of the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), I’m inviting you to provide your input by submitting ideas for the new 2022-2026 NIDCD Strategic Plan.
 
Your input at this early stage will be an invaluable resource to help us determine future research directions and priorities for the plan. In addition to submitting your own input, please encourage your colleagues to respond to the RFI.

NIDCD recently published a Request for Information (RFI) in the NIH Guide, https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-DC-20-001.html, announcing NIDCD’s need for your input.  This RFI is the first of several planned opportunities for NIDCD stakeholders to contribute ideas for the new NIDCD Strategic Plan.  
 
Please use the webform, https://www.nidcd.nih.gov/about/strategic-plan/2022-2026/2022-2026-nidcd-strategic-planning-process to submit your ideas for the new NIDCD Strategic Plan.  NIDCD is accepting responses until March 31, 2020.  
 
Sincerely,
 
Debara L. Tucci, MD, MS, MBA
Director, National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders
