Supporting the Next Generation of Biomedical Researchers [HRA Members Meeting, Spring 2019]

Changes to policy and practice to attract and retain a vibrant biomedical research workforce have been recently suggested. In this session, HRA members will learn about the NAS Report, Breaking Through, which provides specific recommendations to overcome barriers facing the next generation of biomedical researchers. Additionally, we will hear about actions planned by the National Institutes of Health to recruit and retain a highly skilled research workforce. We will also identify potential opportunities for non-governmental funders to implement recommendations in the report.
