On May 2, FASEB transmitted comments to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on its agency-wide Strategic Plan for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA). In its response, data collection on the scientific workforce was emphasized, including identifying and promoting the use of novel measures of productivity.
