Two years ago, in February 2011, we released NCCAM’s Third Strategic Plan. The plan articulated our Center’s goals and objectives and presented a structure for determining priorities for future research. As we greet this anniversary, I’m pleased to report that we are successfully putting the plan into action.

Fiscal year 2012 (which began October 1, 2011) was the first full funding year in which we had our plan in place. I welcome you to review the list of FY 2012 New and Competing Awards, as they truly represent our efforts to invest in the most promising and impactful research related to our overall goals, objectives, and factors for priority setting.

Looking back, we are pleased to see alignment with our strategic plan. In the future, we will continue to fund rigorous research that will help us to fulfill our mission.
