      • Initial prioritization by IC Directors
      • Review by ACD and NIH Director selection
    • Criteria for Roadmap Initiatives Goal is to accelerate the discovery and translation of scientific knowledge into public health benefits
      • Is the proposed initiative truly transforming—could it dramatically affect how biomedical and/or behavioral research is conducted over the next decade?
      • Will the outcomes from the proposed initiative synergistically promote and advance the individual missions of NIH ICs to benefit health?
      • Does the proposed initiative require participation from NIH as a whole and/or does it address an area of science that does not clearly fall within the mission of any one IC or OD program office?
      • Is the proposed initiative something that no other entity is likely or able to do, and is there a public health benefit to having the results of the research in the public domain?
