Strategic Priority I

Strategic Priority I

Systematically monitor NIH investments in prevention research and the progress and results of that research.

Rationale

Comprehensive methods are needed to identify the characteristics of NIH-funded prevention research studies, and to summarize their findings in a meaningful way. Such methods will enable the identification of patterns and trends, as well as research areas that may benefit from targeted efforts by the NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs). Such categorization also will enable monitoring of the progress and changes in prevention research over time.

Objectives for FY 2019–2023

  1. Characterize and report on the NIH prevention research portfolio and submitted applications based on the taxonomy for prevention research developed by the ODP.
  2. Assess the impact of NIH investments in prevention research.
  3. Partner with NIH ICs to disseminate ODP portfolio analysis tools and related data.
