Goal 4: Develop Workforce and Resources

Basic and Clinical Multi-disciplinary Partnerships to Understand Lung Disease

Basic scientists and clinicians have different training and bring different perspectives to lung disease research. Additionally, mechanisms that facilitate interactions of scientists from different fields may improve communication and facilitate novel ideas for lung disease research. I would like to see a funding mechanism that encouraged such partnerships in addressing fundamental disease questions and/or treatments. ...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?

Goal 4: Develop Workforce and Resources

Improving Biomedical Careers

There is a critical challenge to retain highly trained basic and clinical scientists in the biomedical research enterprise and expediently promote their independence and capacity to produce innovative discoveries. There is a need to provide more funding opportunities for collaborative, team-science approaches to scientific investigation by interdisciplinary teams comprised of clinician scientists, basic researchers, and ...more »

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 3: Advance Translational Research

What are the most effective strategies for reducing alarm fatigue and optimizing cardiorespiratory monitor alarm management?

Hospital cardiorespiratory monitors have great potential to save lives, but are hampered by high false alarm rates that contribute to alarm fatigue. While the long term solution is developing new medical devices that will do this better, few hospitals will benefit from new device innovations in the next decade. In order to better identify early signs of cardiorespiratory deterioration in the hospital at an early stage ...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 »
