NIH: Office of Disease Prevention


Featured Resources and Initiatives

Pragmatic and Group-Randomized Trials in Public Health and Medicine

The Pragmatic and Group-Randomized Trials in Public Health and Medicine is a free, online course developed by the ODP that provides a detailed guide to designing and analyzing group-randomized trials (GRTs). The course includes video presentations, slide sets, suggested reading materials, and guided activities.

Tobacco Regulatory Science Program

The Tobacco Regulatory Science Program (TRSP) is a trans-NIH collaboration with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). TRSP supports NIH research that provides the scientific evidence the FDA needs to develop and evaluate tobacco policy and regulations. TRSP issues funding opportunities in tobacco regulatory science on behalf of the FDA and participating NIH Institutes.

Portfolio Analysis

The ODP has partnered with the NIH Office of Portfolio Analysis to create custom-built portfolio analysis tools that help the office monitor and asses NIH-funded prevention research by more accurately and consistently classifying prevention-related grant abstracts. Abstracts are sorted into nearly 150 topics, in eight different categories.

Resources for Researchers

Resources for Researchers is a one-stop shop for NIH disease prevention tools. It includes information about NIH-funded research, prevention research articles, prevention research needs and gaps, methods training opportunities, and dissemination and implementation research.

Prevention Research Highlights

Research Highlights provide information about funded research, current funding opportunities, and recent advances in prevention science. Learn more about how the NIH and its federal partners are addressing such topics as Obesity, Physical Activity, and Tobacco Use.

Programs and Events

Medicine: Mind the Gap is a webinar series that explores research design, measurement, intervention, data analysis, and other methods related to prevention science.

Pathways to Prevention (P2P) workshops identify research gaps and develop recommendations to move prevention research forward.

The ODP Early-Stage Investigator Award recognizes early-career prevention scientists who have not competed successfully for a substantial NIH-supported research project before the award nomination submission deadline, but who have already made significant, outstanding research contributions to their respective fields and are poised to become future leaders in prevention research.

The Robert S. Gordon, Jr. Lecture in Epidemiology is an award given annually to a scientist who has made significant contributions to the field of epidemiology or clinical trials research.
