Welcome to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS)
Visionary Ideas for Strategic Planning

Visionary Ideas relate to broad-based scientific directions for the environmental health sciences community that will help to shape the vision for NIEHS over the next five years. Here, you can submit, vote on, or comment on Visionary Ideas, as well as discuss strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats for NIEHS. We invite you to step back, take a broad view, and think big! You will be asked to register so that you can come back later and check out what’s happening on the site.

Categories have been added to streamline review of the Visionary Ideas. When you add your Idea, pick a category where it fits best, from the drop down menu at left. Be sure to browse all the categories to see the Ideas!

Please Submit Visionary Ideas and nominations for participation in the Community Workshop on or before April 30, 2011, 5 p.m. Pacific Time. After that time, no further comments, votes, or ideas will be accepted on this website.

NIEHS thanks you for your participation!

This site is now closed. Please check the NIEHS Strategic Plan website for a summary report after May 6, 2011.
