Strategic Plan Initiative 

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) is embarking on an Institute-wide strategic planning process. The goal is to develop a broad vision for accelerating research into the causes, prevention, and treatment of diseases and conditions within the Institute’s mission. Click here to learn more about these efforts and how you can provide your insight for this planning process.

IFFGD will be submitting comments in response to this Request for Information (RFI). If you would like to submit any information for consideration to be included in IFFGD's final comments, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The NIDDK's proposed themes to be included in the planning process include:

  • Advancing understanding of biological pathways and environmental contributors to health and disease.
  • Advancing progress in pivotal clinical studies and trials for prevention, treatment, and cures in diverse populations.
  • Advancing dissemination and implementation research on strategies to identify, adapt, scale-up, and integrate evidenced-based interventions in diverse settings and populations.
  • Promoting participant engagement — including patients and other participants as true partners in research.
  • Advancing research training and career development to promote a talented, diverse biomedical research workforce.
  • Promoting innovation, rigor and reproducibility in research, partnerships, and other critical efforts as part of efficient and effective stewardship of public resources.


National Commission on Digestive Diseases –

In April 2006 IFFGD Nancy Norton was one of sixteen members appointed to the National Commission on Digestive Diseases (NCDD). Then Director of the NIH, Dr. Elias A. Zerhouni, established the NCDD based on the mutual interest in advancing digestive diseases research shared by the NIH and the Congress. The charge of the Commission was to create a long-range research plan for digestive diseases based on the state-of-the-science and the related NIH research portfolios. The final research plan, Opportunities and Challenges in Digestive Disease Research: Recommendations of the National Commission on Digestive Diseases contains numerous recommendations for advancing functional GI and motility disorders research and is now available here.

Office of Research on Women’s Health –

In March 2006 Nancy Norton was appointed by the NIH Director to a 4-year term on the eighteen member Advisory Committee on Research on Women’s Health, the advisory body of the NIH’s Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH). The NIH Revitalization Act of 1993 charges the Committee with advising the Director of ORWH on appropriate research activities to be undertaken by the national research institutes with respect to women’s health research. Committee members are actively involved in reviewing research priorities, the women’s health research portfolio for NIH, and the inclusion of women and minorities in clinical research.

National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases –

In October 2001, Nancy Norton was appointed by the NIH Director to a 4-year term on the National Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases Advisory Council, the advisory body of NIH’s National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). This council serves to advise NIDDK about its research portfolio, and to take second-level peer review of research grant applications that have been scored by initial review groups. Council members also serve as liaisons between the research communities they represent and the NIDDK.
