Plan Dissemination and Implementation
The Strategic Plan was disseminated in the following ways:
The NHLBI continues to look to the larger research community to develop the ideas and conduct the studies that advance our knowledge of heart, lung, and blood diseases and enable its application in ways that improve public health. The Strategic Plan will be realized through our investment in investigator-initiated research and, especially, through those innovative investigator-initiated research projects that entail a high risk but offer the promise of especially high returns. Institute investments guided by this plan will be directed largely toward programs that will either enable or complement investigator-initiated activities. The Institute continues to develop and explore effective ways to collaborate with other agencies of the Federal government; with other governmental agencies, both domestic and foreign; and with nongovernmental organizations, both public and private. Our success in implementing the plan will be evaluated on an ongoing basis by the institute with advice and guidance provided by the National Heart Lung and Blood Advisory Council.
