As promised, NIH has issued a “request for information” to help with its plans to implement recommendations of the Working Group on the Biomedical Research Workforce. During a presentation to the Advisory Committee to the Director in December, Sally Rockey, NIH deputy director for extramural research, said the agency wanted input from universities and others about a variety of initiatives designed to make the research workforce more self-sustaining (RRC 2/13, p. 1). NIH’s notice, posted Feb. 22, asked for comment on seven proposals, among them how institutions could utilize individual development plans “to help tailor the training experiences for each student,” “provide a more uniform benefit package for post-doctorates” and develop systems for tracking the career development of grantees. NIH said responses “will be accepted through April 22, 2013.”
