...... report of a November 1999 workshop ......
As scientific knowledge accumulates at an ever-increasing pace, extraordinary opportunities present themselves for making substantial progress in all aspects of biomedical science. To make the most of these opportunities, new approaches and competencies are required of modern investigators ? and accordingly, major innovations in recruiting, educating, training, and retaining the future research work force are called for.
With these imperatives in mind, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) undertook a review of its current training and career development programs and convened a meeting of experts on November 2-3, 1999, to consider all aspects of this important area. The deliberations produced a number of recommendations, summarized in this report.
