On October 28, 2020, The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH¬) published its “Strategic Vision for Improving Human Health at the Forefront of Genomics” (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-020-2817-4) online in the journal Nature. This vision describes the most compelling research priorities and opportunities in human genomics for the coming decade, signaling a new era in genomics for the Institute and the field. “We crafted our new strategic vision at an important inflection point in human genomics," said Eric Green, MD, PhD, NHGRI Director. "Genomics is now prevalent across the research landscape, and so NHGRI focused its strategic attention on the most cutting-edge aspects of the field. Our criteria for inclusion was that future advances must be widely beneficial and have the greatest impact on understanding genome biology and facilitating the implementation of genomic medicine." Genomics is now prevalent across the research landscape, and so NHGRI focused its strategic attention on the most cutting-edge aspects of the field.
