NIDCR seeks input for future workshops and research initiatives

April 18, 2017 Bethesda, Md. — The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research is inviting public comment on how to best integrate the study of oral health with overall health.

Earlier this year, NIDCR launched NIDCR 2030, a “strategic visioning initiative designed to advance dental, oral and craniofacial research over the next 15 years.”

To do this, the agency is seeking input on the five goals it has set for 2030:

  • Oral health and overall health.
  • Precision medicine.
  • Autotherapies.
  • Oral biodevices.
  • Workforce diversity.
Visit NIDCR 2030 to submit research ideas and to vote and comment on the ideas of others. The agency said it plans to use the information it collects to plan future workshops and research initiatives.

The idea submission period ends May 19 and all votes must be entered by June 2. Learn more at the NIDCR 2030 webpage.
