FASEB Recommendations (3)

A couple of recommendations under "Recognize and Reward Translational Scientists" might be of interest to the faculy. Under the recommendations to individual scientists they suggest that faculty be aware of tenure expectations, clearly articulate their career goals, and negotiate department concurence. Having served on the university promotion and tenure committee I find this to be valuable advice. Translational research often crosses boundaries or resides in unusual surroundings. As a result, the promotion and tenure decision is complicated because the research and publications are often outside of the "mainstream". The faculty member needs to make sure that the committee(s) value the research and subsequent "journals" and not assume that normal processes are sufficient.
