News and events from NIDDK-funded research and programs.
From NIDDK Director Dr. Griffin P. Rodgers
I’m pleased to share NIDDK’s new Strategic Plan, which presents a broad vision for accelerating research over the next five years to improve the health of people who have or are at risk for diseases within our mission. The plan includes four major scientific goals
advance understanding of contributors to health and disease
develop and test prevention and treatment approaches in clinical trials
advance research to disseminate and implement evidence-based strategies to improve health
engage stakeholders as partners in research.
NIDDK is also committed to serving as an efficient and effective steward of public resources, empowering a multidisciplinary research community, engaging diverse stakeholders, and leveraging discoveries of connections among diseases to improve health for all through prevention, treatment, and health equity. This unifying theme is highlighted throughout the Strategic Plan.
I extend my sincere thanks to all who contributed to the plan’s development, including researchers, people living with diseases in our mission, and NIDDK staff. I’m enthusiastic about how it will help shape our path forward.
