NIAID Invites Public Feedback on Strategic Plan

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) has published a Request for Information to update its five-year Strategic Plan. NIAID is soliciting comments on several proposed research priorities. According to the RFI, the proposed research priorities include:

Priority 1: Advance foundational research on the immune system, host-pathogen interactions, and pathogen biology.

Priority 2: Apply foundational knowledge of the complex interactions between microbes and the immune system to develop and test medical countermeasures against known infectious diseases (non-HIV/AIDS).

Priority 3: Apply knowledge of HIV/AIDS to reduce HIV incidence through the development of safe and effective prevention, treatment, and cure strategies.

Priority 4: Apply knowledge of basic immunology to develop and enhance intervention strategies for asthma, allergic and immune-mediated diseases, and transplantation.

Priority 5: Support innovative research efforts to prepare for and respond to nationally or internationally significant biological incidents affecting public health.

Responses to this RFI must be submitted via email to: NIAIDStrategicPlanRFI@niaid.nih.gov

Responses must be received by May 27, 2024, at 11:59 p.m. ET.  Comments from the research community are encouraged.
