Earlier this year, NIH Director Francis Collins announced a permanent trans-NIH research coordinating committee specifically tasked with supporting health research in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex communities with the aim of continuing its extensive outreach to identify research priorities, gaps, and opportunities within the field.
The recently published request for information is intended to allow for broader input on NIH’s strategic plan for LGBTI research. The NIH is very interested in hearing your comments about research opportunities involving LGBTI health, as well as feedback on how to engage the LGBTI populations in this work, and training in the research and clinical settings.
See the full details in the NIH Guide, including how to submit formal comments before the October 28, 2013 deadline.
Check out the June 27 listening session of LGBTI researchers and community advocates.
