The comment period for the RFI closed January 30, 2015. Thanks to everyone who submitted comments. All of the comments can be found here in the categories to which the recommendations applied; comments that applied to multiple categories are included (without editing) in all categories to which they are applicable. NIDA is currently reviewing all comments and will incorporate them into the draft strategic plan which will be released for public comment when it is completed.
NIDA will also be convening workgroups to obtain input from subject matter experts in areas for which we recognize the need for additional external input in developing our strategic priorities, including: big data, gene by environment by development interactions, addressing complex patients, and health disparities. Summaries of the recommendations from these workgroups will be posted here when available.
