Goal 4: Develop Workforce and Resources

RO1 funding rate

I would like to suggest the following changes in RO1 funding: (1) Reduce the amount but maintain the duration of each RO1 award to make academic research labs SMALLER but BETTER - This will force PIs pay closer attention to experimental design, to improve the efficiency and accuracy. It may entice more PIs to do more experiments themselves, the best way to reduce errors, maintain consistency and keep in touch with the ...more »

DEVELOPMENT AND SUPPORT FOR APHERESIS MEDICINE INVESTIGATORS

The apheresis medicine encompasses treatment of numerous diseases many of which are directly related to blood, lung and heart. However, there are very limited opportunities for training young investigators in basic and translational research related to Apheresis Medicine. There is a need to promote Apheresis Medicine as a viable field of research for junior and established investigators. The influx of well-trained junior ...more »

Goal 4: Develop Workforce and Resources

Preserving and promoting expertise in integrative physiology

From my perspective, one of the key “critical challenges” facing the NHLBI in particular, and medical science in general, is to avoid being blinded by the promises of the reductionists in the “personalized, precision medicine” of the future. In order to understand the advances being made at the molecular level, we need to preserve and promote expertise in truly integrative physiology, what I like to call “PHYSIOMICS”. ...more »

Development of IT tools to rapidly access key portions of the EHR

As the volume of information in EHR has continued to increase, one of the current challenges is how to find key pieces of information within the EHR. For example if a patient presents to the ED with Chest Pain as chief complaint, key information for that patient related to this chief complaint should be retrieved by the IT system and presented to the clinician for review such as prior ECG's, prior work-ups including any ...more »
