A Blue Sky Vision for the Future of Neuroscience
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) is in the process of developing a blue sky vision for neuroscience and neurology to help them develop their goals over the next fifteen years. This vision will serve as the foundation for subsequent planning activities. They are seeking your input. You may answer all of the questions, or you may respond to the subset that interest you the most. The deadline for response is August 31, 2007.
1: What advances should we expect in clinical care for neurological disorders over the next fifteen years, based on anticipated progress in biomedical research? What scientific advances will result in a quantum leap in the care of neurologic disorders, and what aspects of care are likely to remain unchanged?
2: Which major questions need to be answered in order to revolutionize how we understand the nervous system and prevent, diagnose, and treat nervous system disorders?
3: What new technical capabilities have the potential to revolutionize neuroscience research and clinical practice in the next fifteen years?
4: What will the neuroscience research landscape look like in fifteen years, and how can NINDS best contribute?
5. What, if any, infrastructural resources are needed to advance clinical or basic neuroscience research?
6. What ethical, legal, and social issues are likely to arise from advances in basic and clinical neuroscience over the next fifteen years, for which the NINDS should be prepared?
It is great to see NINDS taking such a proactive medium term view. Hopefully, you'll find time in your schedule to answer some these questions. I will.
