Goal 4: Develop Workforce and Resources

Preparing a Diverse Biomedical Technology Development Workforce

How do we best develop a scientific workforce that is fluent in product development and commercialization issues?

How can NHLBI best expand the training opportunities for early career scientists to prepare them for entry into the dynamic biomedical workforce landscape?

There is a need for scientifically-trained experts from diverse backgrounds who also understand business needs relevant to biomedical technology development, with both the depth and breadth of knowledge needed to bring products for heart, lung, blood, sleep indications to the market, including regulatory, intellectual property, and business skills. Current academic training does not prepare trainees in these non-academically focused skills.
