Goal 4: Develop Workforce and Resources

Training of Clinical & Translational Scientists

What is the possibility of other institutes to come up with the priority of funding resources in this regard?

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.

Goal 4: Develop Workforce and Resources

Promoting Translational Research training using the R03 mechanism

The R03 is a very simple very flexible mechanism.... more »
