Goal 4: Develop Workforce and Resources

Similar changes to those in modern manufacdturing are required through our new technical society inlcuding medicine.

Attitudes to Mistakes. Changing prescription and protocol philosophy. As an older patient, I am 89, I have one thing many others do not have, experience. As an engineer with much experience in manufacturing industry I have seen great recent changes in manufacturing sociology. Now, even top management comes to listen to “the Gemba” (the shop floor) and what could be regarded as mistakes are seen as opportunities to improve ...more »

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Single thing needed to prevent obesity: control the mouth

The cause of obesity is clear and simple: eating > needs, or in > out; that is, energy intake is greater than energy use. For the majority of the public, there is little genetic component to cause obesity or over weight. Rather, personal determination is the single thing that is needed to control body weight.

Goal 1: Promote Human Health

Evaluation of large-scale regulatory efforts in the US and elsewhere

A number of cities(e.g Berkeley), states and countries (e.g Mexico's SSB tax, Chiles SSB and soon marketing controls and food package front of package label) will go into effect.

Serious rigorous independent evaluations are needed to learn if these options--pushed ...more »

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Recognizing that HLB are components of a whole person

RASopathies is one of a group of syndromes that include heart, lung and blood issues, but these are not all the concerns. Recognizing that these organs are part of a functional network (called the human body), partnering with other Institutes could help expedite knowledge of these systems.

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 »
