Analysis Guides NCI Programs Supporting the R01-Funded Workforce
NCI’s Center for Research Strategy analyzed 26 years of data to better understand the funding trends of the NCI R01-funded workforce, focusing on the age and career stage of investigators. This data, recently published by Dr. L. Michelle Bennett et al. in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, shows how NCI is actively developing policies based on this understanding and looking into methods that sustainably fund more principal investigators.
