What is NIHs Core Strategic Vision?
  • Transform medicine and health from a Curative to
    a Preemptive paradigm
  • Accelerate fundamental research into our
    understanding of complex biological systems and
    their regulation at the earliest molecular stages
    of disease.
  • Remove barriers to translation of these findings
    from the bench to the bedside
  • Provide the evidence and knowledge base to enable
    our healthcare system to intervene before disease
    strikes and not after!

7
Points of Tension Managing in Challenging Times?
  • Large vs Small Scale science?
  • Infrastructure vs hypothesis driven RO1s?
  • Basic vs. translational research What is the
    right balance?
  • Peer review what to do given demand/supply
    imbalance?
  • How does NIH address public health issues
  • How do we best communicate with constituencies
  • How do we continue to support the best intra and
    extramural science by the best scientists ?
  • What should be at the top of our agendas?

8
Road Map II Strategic Initiative Inclusion
Criteria
  • The overarching goal of all Roadmap initiatives
    is to accelerate the
  • discovery and translation of scientific knowledge
    into public health
  • benefits. Roadmap is conceived of as a five to
    ten year incubator space
  • for NIH initiatives that meet all of the
    following criteria
  • Is the proposed initiative truly transforming
    could it dramatically affect how biomedical
    and/or behavioral research is conducted over the
    next decade?
  • Will the outcomes from the proposed initiatives
    synergistically promote and advance the
    individual missions of the Institutes and Centers
    to benefit health?
  • Does the proposed initiative require
    participation from NIH as a whole and/or does it
    address an area (s) of science that does not
    clearly fall within the mission of any one IC or
    OD program office?
  • Is the proposed initiative something that no
    other entity is likely or able to do, and is
    there a public health benefit to having the
    results of the research in the public domain?

9
Schedule for Roadmap II
  • July 3 consultation meetings with
    extramural scientists
  • August Submission of initiative concepts
    from IC
  • September 2 additional consultation meetings
  • Pilot test responsiveness
    determination
  • process on nominations to
    date
  • October Release RFI for comments idea
    nominations
  • from the broad
    public/research community
  • November Mini-Retreat to review and prioritize
    idea
  • nominations

HIV Rapid Test
Integrating HIV Rapid Testing and Counseling
into Drug Treatment
  • 1,000,000 people in USA are infected with HIV
  • 40,000 new cases each year
  • 250,000 300,000 of persons with HIV are unaware
    they are infected
  • ¼ of persons who test HIV fail to return to
    receive results
  • CDC now recommends offering routine HIV testing
    to persons at risk for HIV
  • FDA approved
  • blood from a finger stick or oral fluid
  • 20 minutes
  • 12-15/kit
  • can be done by counselors

Conclusions
  • Fundamentally, as an Institute, NIDA is doing
    well in protecting early career investigators in
    this era of shrinking funding opportunities.
  • NIDA is currently promoting innovative research
    via a number of standard mechanisms.
  • Improvements on all of these fronts can be made
    by NIDA continuing activities such as
  • collecting accurate data on new investigators
  • increasing use of mechanisms that stress
    innovation and nurture early investigators (e.g.,
    B/START)
  • educating PIs that training/mentorship must be
    present in all multi-grant or large grant
    environments
  • increasing the funding and scope of Mentored K
    Awards
  • establishing an Innovation Committee
  • increasing awareness of the various trans-NIH
    initiatives, such and the Roadmap and Blueprint.

37
Conclusions/Summary
  • DBNBR has established strong research programs
    central to the mission of NIDA to bring the
    power of science to bear on problems of drug
    abuse.
  • DBNBR plays a critical role in translation of
    basic science conducted in their division to
    studies of human patients conducted in other NIDA
    divisions
  • Opportunities to enhance basic science include
  • Investment in emerging areas of social
    neuroscience and epigenetics
  • Strengthened dissemination of services
  • Continued fostering of the careers of new
    investigators
  • Continued emphasis on the revolution in the
    ways science will be conducted in the future

Conclusions
  • Fundamentally, as an Institute, NIDA is doing
    well in protecting early career investigators in
    this era of shrinking funding opportunities.
  • NIDA is currently promoting innovative research
    via a number of standard mechanisms.
  • Improvements on all of these fronts can be made
    by NIDA continuing activities such as
  • collecting accurate data on new investigators
  • increasing use of mechanisms that stress
    innovation and nurture early investigators (e.g.,
    B/START)
  • educating PIs that training/mentorship must be
    present in all multi-grant or large grant
    environments
  • increasing the funding and scope of Mentored K
    Awards
  • establishing an Innovation Committee
  • increasing awareness of the various trans-NIH
    initiatives, such and the Roadmap and Blueprint.

Conclusions/Summary
  • DBNBR has established strong research programs
    central to the mission of NIDA to bring the
    power of science to bear on problems of drug
    abuse.
  • DBNBR plays a critical role in translation of
    basic science conducted in their division to
    studies of human patients conducted in other NIDA
    divisions
  • Opportunities to enhance basic science include
  • Investment in emerging areas of social
    neuroscience and epigenetics
  • Strengthened dissemination of services
  • Continued fostering of the careers of new
    investigators
  • Continued emphasis on the revolution in the
    ways science will be conducted in the future
