Emergency Response

  1. The RDRP is encouraged to explore research strategies in its emergency response efforts. For example, the RDRP should assess how NIOSH-supported research and medical surveillance of World Trade Center disaster emergency responders and recovery workers may or may not be relevant to work-related asthma, work-related fixed obstructive airway disease, interstitial lung diseases, and possibly malignancies.

RDRP Resource Allocation

  1. The RDRP should prioritize all research proposals under consideration for funding, whether intramural or extramural, according to the RDRP strategic plan, which needs to be updated periodically.
