NCTR Blog Outreach Plan

Description: NCTR will develop a blog to highlight discussion about NCTR ongoing capabilities, science innovation, and other noteworthy activities the target audiences may deem important. The prime target audience for the blog will be scientific researchers with interest in regulatory science and toxicology. Secondary targets are expected to include academia (students and faculty); and internal HHS colleagues with similar interest in the work being conducted at NCTR. The NCTR blog development approach will emulate the model used by USA.gov. The strategy includes creating an NCTR social media hub with links to all of the social media areas FDA/NCTR participates in (makes it easy for end users, and search engines, to discover). The blog will aid in information dispersal on toxicological research techniques and activities to investigators and others working in the field to protect and promote human health.

Accomplishment: Pursuit of an NCTR specific blog has changed from a Center-specific initiative to an inclusion of NCTR blogs as contributions to the existing Agency, “FDA Voice” blog. NCTR blog content goals from the initial plan remain the same, and although activities are ongoing, the project was withdrawn from FDA-TRACK.
