Urgent public health measures are needed to control the spread of the novel coronavirus. Scientific research to improve basic understanding of COVID-19 and to develop the necessary tools and approaches to better prevent, diagnose, and treat this disease is of paramount importance. The NIH-Wide Strategic Plan for COVID-19 Research, released on July 13, 2020, provides a framework for achieving this goal. It describes how NIH is rapidly mobilizing diverse stakeholders, including the biomedical research community, industry, and philanthropic organizations, through new programs and existing resources, to lead a swift, coordinated research response to this global pandemic.
Because of the urgency and evolving nature of the pandemic, this plan is intended to be a living document, which will be continually updated to reflect new challenges presented by COVID-19. To ensure that it remains in step with public needs, NIH invites stakeholders throughout the scientific research, advocacy, and clinical practice communities, as well as the general public to comment on their plan.
Responses must be received by 11:59:59 pm (ET) on December 7, 2020.
