NIH invites researchers in academia and industry, members of scientific or professional organizations, and other members of the public to provide comments from their perspective on areas that would benefit from access to in-patient research beds. Topics can include but are not limited to biomedical research areas that are currently limited by a lack of in-patient research beds, and areas that are best poised to utilize NIH Clinical Center resources.

NIH plans to use the information to consider new partnerships for enhancing use of the Clinical Center to address research questions that can be most effectively and efficiently answered by interventions or procedures that require hospitalization in a unique, research-focused setting.
