Session Abstract: 

Defining the value of return associated with the federal government’s research investment continues to be of much interest to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Congress, and the broader research community. While there is great interest in this topic, available metrics are insufficient to efficiently and effectively collect, analyze, and report on the value of biomedical research (VOBR). The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) within NIH, has launched an evaluation project to address this large scale issue. This project aims to build on previous NIH VOBR efforts by: 1) identifying measures, data sets, and analytic approaches to determine the value of research return in a NIAID setting, 2) determining how to best apply these systematically to multiple types of NIAID research portfolios, and 3) validating the proposed measures and approaches using selected NIAID research portfolios.  Roundtable participants will brainstorm approaches for measuring the value of biomedical research.
