The strategic goals cut across the Institute’s heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) research portfolio and are rooted in a desire to understand and promote health and resilience, stimulate discoveries in the causes of disease, enable the translation of discoveries from basic research into clinical practice, and foster training and mentoring of emerging scientists and physicians.
The eight objectives provide an organizing framework for the NHLBI Research Priorities. The objectives reflect one or more of the strategic goals. Over the next decade, these objectives will serve as the NHLBI’s guide for moving HLBS science forward, exploring research opportunities, and making investment decisions. While these objectives are not meant to embody the NHLBI’s entire research portfolio, the strategic research priorities corresponding to the objectives will play a substantial role in helping the NHLBI to set, and periodically refine, a research agenda and priorities for the next decade.
