Background: NIDCR is the lead federal agency for research and research training on oral, dental and craniofacial diseases and disorders. NIDCR has a distinguished record of nearly 60 years of supporting research to advance the oral health of the nation. Achieving NIDCR’s vision of advancing the oral health and well-being for all requires having a comprehensive strategic plan that identifies the most promising opportunities for investment, delineates the Institute’s priorities, and that reflects the advice of the research community and the public at large. NIDCR achieves its mission to improve oral, dental and craniofacial health through research, research training and the dissemination of health information. DATES: Request for Comments The NIDCR seeks input to the following questions to inform the strategic plan: 1. Looking forward, should NIDCR increase its use of targeted research to ensure that key research areas with promise are addressed? If so, what priority areas would you recommend that NIDCR pursue? Targeted research is research solicited by the Institute via initiatives, RFAs or RFPs. PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2. In your view, what are the truly ‘‘transformative’’ areas that could have the greatest benefit for advancing dental research? 3. What can be done to augment and accelerate the role and significance of dental and craniofacial research in the growing framework of translational research? 4. What should be NIDCR’s position on funding ‘‘high risk/high reward research’’? What in your view constitutes ‘‘high risk/high reward’’? 5. In realistic terms, what can—and should—NIDCR do to expand and enhance the ‘‘pipeline’’ for new dental and craniofacial researchers? 6.
