Strategic Plan for NIH Obesity Research

Strategic Plan Report

The Strategic Plan for NIH Obesity Research serves as a guide to accelerate a broad spectrum of research toward developing new and more effective approaches to address the tremendous burden of obesity, so that people can look forward to healthier lives.

The Plan was originally published in 2011. In 2018-2019, the Obesity Research Task Force confirmed that the challenges and opportunities identified in the Plan reflect the current research landscape and should continue to guide obesity research.
