National Academies Advisory: March 18 public briefing on biomedical investigators

Concerns have been raised for decades about early-career biomedical scientists spending longer periods of time as postdoctoral appointees, unable to set their own research directions or establish their independence. In 2002, for example, the median age at which researchers received their first independent grant from the National Institutes of Health was 42. BRIDGES TO INDEPENDENCE: FOSTERING THE INDEPENDENCE OF NEW INVESTIGATORS IN BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH, a new report from the National Academies' National Research Council, explains how NIH and other stakeholders must transform the status quo to help ensure the vitality of the U.S. biomedical research enterprise. The report will be released at a one-hour public briefing.

DETAILS:
Friday, March 18, at 10 a.m. EST in the Lecture Room of the National Academies building, 2100 C St., N.W., Washington, D.C. Those who cannot attend are invited to listen to a live audio webcast and submit questions using an e-mail form at http://national-academies.org.
