"Charting our Future Together: Setting an Agenda for the NHLBI"

Gary H. Gibbons, MD, is Director of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), where he oversees the third largest Institute at the NIH, with an annual budget of approximately $3 billion and 1000 employees. The NHLBI provides global leadership for research, training, and education programs to promote the prevention and treatment of heart, lung, and blood disease and enhance the health of all individuals so that they can live longer and more fulfilling lives.

In light of a changing political, fiscal, scientific, and technological landscape, the NHLBI initiated a strategic priority setting and resource management process that harnesses the collective intelligence of NHLBI staff, researchers, and stakeholders. These processes are guided by enduring principles to seize unprecedented opportunities to support transformative research that advances public health.
