NIH Roadmap Home Page

  • Overview
  • Not much science
Well, I think we can all see where this one is headed. Get it? OK, bad pun, but the truth is, that’s not a bad description of what this site is aimed at doing—showing direction for NIH-funded research. According to information at the site, the NIH Roadmap “is an innovative approach to accelerate fundamental discovery and translation of that knowledge into effective prevention strategies and new treatments.” Initiatives described at the site include three broad themes: New Pathways to Discovery, Research Teams of the Future, and Re-engineering the Clinical Research Enterprise.” The site provides links to funding opportunities within these initiatives, descriptions of previously funded research, FAQs, and News/Information. An interesting read.
