Next Generation of Biomedical and Behavioral Science Researchers: Breaking Through - February 19
Includes a Live Event on 02/19/2019 at 1:00 PM (EST)
The 2018 National Academies report “The Next Generation of Biomedical and Behavioral Sciences Researchers: Breaking Through” addresses the core challenges that early and mid-career scientists encounter throughout the biomedical research enterprise in the U.S., putting at risk their critical contributions in the areas of health and innovation. The report makes recommendations that aim to support the next generation of America’s biomedical researchers as they seek to identify and pursue the independent research career path that best serves them and the research community, whether in an academic, industry, government, or other setting, as well as promote a robust biomedical research community consisting of diverse and innovative researchers.
To discuss these core challenges and provide practical recommendations for addressing them at the organizational and institutional levels, join study director Lida Beninson, PhD, in the fourth webinar of the series. She will focus on the implementation of two essential recommendations: 1) providing every postdoctoral researcher with a high-quality training experience that prepares them for success in their chosen career and 2) developing mechanisms to increase the number of individuals in staff scientist positions. This webinar will also feature examples of institutional implementation of these two recommendations.
Webinar participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with the presenters and other participants during the presentation.
