Rescuing U.S. Biomedical Research from Its Systemic Flaws [Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences, April 2014]

Leading academics in biomedical research described a series of issues they felt were leading to a hyper-competitive environment in the US academic system, negatively affecting young researchers, and potentially the state of academic research itself in the U.S. They were particularly concerned that young scientists were not yet widely heard in this debate.
