Inform Policy

Participate in a Meeting or Event

The NIH Office of Science Policy hosts and participates in a number of scientific meetings, workshops, and events throughout the year. We also attend or present at several meetings annually.

Previously Compiled Public Comments

Stakeholder input is an essential part of informing the policy making process. OSP frequently solicits this feedback through the release of Requests for Information (RFIs) or Requests for Comments (RFCs). Once OSP has analyzed the comments we receive, we post them to the OSP website in order to ensure transparency. Click below to learn more and view our previously compiled comments.
