Needs Assessment and Description
The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) is the principal NIH institute supporting studies on population research including reproductive biology and medicine. In 2010, NICHD Director Dr. Alan Guttmacher initiated a scientific visioning process, in collaboration with the Institute’s external partners, to identify key scientific opportunities of the next decade across the Institute’s mission. This plenary session will acquaint scientists and practicing physicians with the visioning process and highlight selected scientific opportunities relevant to reproductive research that emerged in the process.
At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
- Describe the purpose of the NICHD scientific visioning process.
- Identify three scientific opportunities that emerged from the NICHD visioning process that relate to reproductive medicine.
