What strategies should NHLBI use to pursue students at the K-12 level of their education and also to encourage their scientific interests through the undergraduate and graduate levels?

But limited research is being funded on understanding structure - function relationships on glycans. Likewise, we are training very few researchers in the glycosciences. More programs are needed to impart glycoscience knowledge at the undergraduate, ...more »
