Goal 4: Develop Workforce and Resources

Funding & Review Mechanisms

Funding and review mechanisms are essential resources that can facilitate or hinder innovative research to meet the NHLBI goals. These resources must be refocused to result in identification and funding of the type of innovative research being sought by NHLBI.

The opportunities for leveraging available NHLBI funds with other sources should be considered formally as a component of overall budget planning, not just on an “ad hoc” basis for specific initiatives, so that a clear expectation is fostered, even if these contributions are projected as estimates.

NHLBI standing and special emphasis review committee mandates and membership should be refocused to mirror the likely recipients of funding.
