In September of 2003, National Institutes of Health Director Elias A.

answer questions about the NIH Roadmap’s three themes: New Pathways to

Clinical Research Enterprise.  

Representatives from academic health centers, professional 
organizations, and health advocacy groups are particularly encouraged
