Goal 4: Develop Workforce and Resources

Making R01 funding work for the Medical Sciences

We need to spread R01 funding around more to ensure that the best science has funding adequate to move forward. To do this I believe changing how we think about R01 funding and expenditures can be used to put the NIH funds to better use. Too often successful researchers have the majority of their salaries on R01s and the institutions have little skin in the game. PI salaries can be a large part of the escalating budget ...more »

Goal 4: Develop Workforce and Resources

Develop Vascular Anomalies Medical Training and Research Programs

Patients with vascular anomalies frequently see many physicians and undergo extraneous tests with incorrect diagnoses. A major reason for this is due to the fact that medical training does not include Vascular Anomalies in the syllabus. Thus, many specialties erroneously use the term "hemangioma" for any vascular diagnosis. Over the past 2 decades, there have been major breakthroughs in basic and genetic research, as ...more »

How to decrease the amount/level of mistreatment by medical staff toward Sickle Cell Patients

How can we better train the medical staff to realize that we are individuals and not see us as a disease as opposed to an individual when treating us in the Emergency Room. To listen to the patients advice and comments. Helps them realize most adult patients have been taking narcotics the majority of their lives and that's why they require higher doses (without the judgment).

Research training to support population-focused obesity research in ethnic minority populations

NIH is already facing a challenge in increasing the number and viability of researchers of color. Obesity research in black (or other high risk minority) populations can be used to explore how research training programs that focus on specific issues of importance to populations of color might contribute to the recruitment and success of ethnic minority researchers in the NIH system.
