Strategic Goal 4: Scientific Research and Development Performance Indicators
Strategic Objective 4.1 Strengthen the pool of qualified health and behavioral science researchers. 4.1.1 a) Through the National Research Service Award program, increase the probability that scientists continue participation in NIH-funded research within the following ten years: Post-doctoral fellows a) 13 percentage points a) 12+ percentage points
b) Through the National Research Service Award program, increase the probability that scientists continue participation in NIH-funded research within the following ten years: Pre-doctoral trainees and fellows. b) 13 percentage points. b) 12+ percentage points.
Strategic Objective 4.2 Increase basic scientific knowledge to improve human health and human development. 4.2.1 Develop and apply clinically one new imaging technique to enable tracking the mobility of stem cells within cardiovascular tissues. Researchers in the NIH intramural program have developed probes that are compatible with optical microscopy techniques developed by intramural scientists. Develop one new imaging technique that is able to be clinically applied.
4.2.2 Identify at least one clinical intervention that will delay the progression or onset of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), or prevent it. Nearly 1,000 new late-onset AD families have been identified and recruited to the AD Genetics Initiative.  Identify the next generation of compounds for testing in pilot clinical trials.
4.2.3 Develop a novel advanced pattern recognition algorithm to analyze data obtained from imaging technologies to aid clinicians in diagnosing the earliest stage of disease, e.g., brain cancer. The prototype pattern recognition algorithm has been designed and trained to recognize anomalies in the pilot study of brain Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopic Imaging (MRS) scans.  Apply, in conjunction with a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) partner, a pattern recognition algorithm to identify early biomarkers of brain disease to other disease endpoints in clinical applications such as those used to identify breast cancer markers. 
Strategic Objective 4.3 Conduct and oversee applied research to improve health and well-being. 4.3.1 Conduct clinical trials to assess the efficacy of at least three new treatment strategies to reduce cardiovascular morbidity/mortality in patients with type 2 diabetes and/or chronic kidney disease. Initial findings made public at the annual American Diabetes Association meeting in June 2006. Complete clinical trials and make results available.
Strategic Objective 4.4 Communicate and transfer research results into clinical, public health, and human service practice. 4.4.1 Increase the number of AoA-supported community-based sites that use evidence-based disease and disability prevention programs. 27 sites 136 sites
4.4.2 Reduce the disparity between African-Americans infants and White infants in back sleeping by 50% to reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). The SIDS rate for African-American infants is two times greater than that of White infants. Reduce disparity by 50%
4.4.3 Reduce the financial cost (or burden) of upper gastrointestinal (GI) hospital admissions by implementing known research findings. $93.46 per U.S. resident ages 65 to 85. 10% reduction
