Overview

To build the NICHD strategic plan concerning health disparities, the Institute drew from its existing, distinguished, and strong research portfolio aimed at eliminating health disparities. Reflecting the Institute’s mission, the unifying concept of the plan is development, starting before conception and continuing throughout the lifespan and across generations. The Institute’s long experience investigating the complex biological and environmental interactions that drive developmental processes is invaluable when clarifying the causes of racial and ethnic, and even community-based, disparities. By focusing and coordinating research on gestation and the early years of life, including the transitions into and out of adolescence and young adulthood, the NICHD can address not only the development, but the critical timing of preventive and therapeutic strategies.
