Dear Investigator,

 On behalf of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Office of the
 Director has charged the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, in
 conjunction with 17 other Institutes and Centers, to convene a Rat Model
 Priority Meeting, which will be held on May 3, 1999 in Bethesda, MD, to
 discuss and develop a plan for the rat as a model system. This meeting
 is designed to illustrate and define the critical role the rat can play
 in delineating health and disease given the investment in human and
 mouse structural and functional genomic programs.

 We are soliciting input from the community concerning this meeting.  To
 comment, please point your web browser to


 and respond to the posted questions, either on the bulletin board or via
 email directly to the contractor for this meeting. Answers and comments
 will be shared with the meeting participants, Dr. Varmus, and the NIH
 Institute Directors and/or designates. The answers to these questions
 will be compiled on April 9, 1999, so please send in your comments prior
 to that date.

 All responses are posted on the web and available for your review.  To
