Goal 1: Promote Human Health

Achieving Excellence in Health and Science Communication

At least two thirds of US adults use the internet to access health information. The accuracy and quality of health and science information found on news media websites, corporate websites of the healthcare industry, blogs of healthcare providers and social media networks varies widely. Nevertheless, this information can have a profound influence on the healthcare-related decision-making of patients. The anti-vaccination ...more »

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 3: Advance Translational Research

What is the optimal way to improve cardiac arrest resuscitation?

Sudden Death from cardiac arrest and gaps in knowledge of emergency cardiovascular care are the #1 killer of more than 400,000 Americans each year. This epidemic of death and disability is largely ignored and underfunded by NIH and all funding agencies and kills more than HIV, Cancer, Diabetes, and infectious diseases. There is no national registry of cardiac arrest, no mandatory reporting, and poor funding for both fundamental, ...more »

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Implementation science research to reduce adverse effects of SCD

From various publications and reports, we have characterized the risks associated with sickle cell disease (SCD) and understand many of the barriers for treatment of SCD in LMICs. How can implementation science research be used to reduce the negative outcomes of SCD in low/middle income countries?
