Is this idea a Compelling Question (CQ) or Critical Challenge (CC)? Critical Challenge (CC)

Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC

Continuity of research discoveries requires that outstanding mentors impart their passion and research skills to the next generation. Opportunities and incentives must be provided to ensure that highly qualified scientists can devote adequate time and effort to mentor promising junior colleagues, as well as enhance their own research output.

Feasibility and challenges of addressing this CQ or CC

Mentor-directed opportunities can be immediately made available to provide protected time and salary for scientists with a passion for mentoring.
The current K24 mechanisms have been shown to be quite beneficial, not only for the mentor who can advance his career in the academe, but more so for the trainees who are exposed to the science that the mentor brings. However, K24 awards are primarily for patient-oriented research which enhance clinical skills. Non-clinical biomedical research will also benefit from similar programs.
