NIH Examines Biomedical Research Workforce Issues
Published on: September 15, 2011
The Advisory Committee to the NIH Director (ACD) has established a working group to examine the future of the biomedical research workforce in the U.S. The group is currently gathering information from various sources including the extramural community, in order to eventually develop a model for a sustainable, diverse, and productive U.S. biomedical research workforce using appropriate expertise from NIH and external sources. The model will help inform decisions about how to train the optimal number of people for the appropriate types of positions that will advance science and promote health.
ASH is planning to submit comments in response to this RFI and is currently soliciting feedback from the membership on this issue. ASH members who have considered these workforce issues are strongly encouraged to contact ASH Senior Manager for Scientific Affairs Ulyana Desiderio, PhD at email@example.com or 202-776-0544.
