To carry out its mission and optimize return on public investment, NIH has designed a strategic Framework that includes three key Objectives that align with the agency’s goals. These three Objectives outline NIH’s priorities in (1) biomedical and behavioral research areas, (2) research capacity, and (3) research conduct. Across all of these priorities, NIH emphasizes several Crosscutting Themes—approaches that are common to all Objectives of the Strategic Plan—including improving minority health and reducing health disparities; enhancing women’s health; addressing public health challenges across the lifespan; promoting collaborative science; and leveraging data science for biomedical discovery. Examples of these important crosscutting topics are located throughout the three Objectives.
