NIDA is asking for input on their strategic plan for the next 5 years. They are listening, what do you want to tell them? Text about the RFI from NIDA is below:

 

The Division of Basic Neuroscience and Behavioral Research (DBNBR) is interested in your thoughts on how to drive basic science research on drug abuse forward over the next 5 years.  I want to personally invite you to submit your perspective and ideas on NIDA’s strategic priorities for 2016-2020 and hope you will share some of your valuable time to participate in this critical process!  We are particularly interested in your thoughts regarding the basic science strategic priorities outlined in the RFI.  Which of these priorities are most important?  Are there priorities that are missing and should be added?  Are there areas that need just a small investment to make big advancements?  This is your chance to provide input into NIDA’s strategic plans.  Please take just a few minutes to submit your thoughts and ideas to this RFI.

 

The RFI is here: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-DA-15-005.html.

Share your vision and ideas related to basic science by emailing them here:  NIDAOSPCPlanning@mail.nih.gov

 

One final note:  Please share this information with any relevant scientific colleagues, post-doctoral fellows and graduate students.  We would like to get as much input from the basic science research community as possible.
