4
NIH Roadmap Goal
  • Goal of K12 NIH Roadmap
  • ...to educate future leaders of multidisciplinary
    clinical research and speed the translation of
    research discoveries into improved patient care.

5
NIH Roadmap
New Pathways to Discovery
Re-engineering the Clinical Research Enterprise
Research Teams of the Future
6
How Did We Get Here?
  • Difficulty recruiting and retaining clinical
    researchers
  • Rising overhead costs and regulatory demands
  • Limitations due to NIH funding mechanisms,
    review, and program structure
  • Lack of a viable career pathway deters
    investigators from conducting clinical and
    translational research impedes basic research
    results from entering into clinical practice

7
Challenges of Interdisciplinary Research
  • The current system of academic advancement favors
    the independent investigator
  • Most institutions house scientists in discrete
    departments
  • Interdisciplinary science requires
    interdisciplinary peer-review
  • Project management and oversight is currently
    performed by discrete ICs
  • Interdisciplinary research teams take time to
    assemble and require unique resources

8
Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Career
Development Program
  • Roadmap K12 Program is designed to increase the
    national pool of clinician-scientists from many
    disciplines
  • The program differs in its goal by supporting
    career development of the clinical research team
  • The clinical research team includes nurses,
    sociologists, pharmacologists, biostatisticians,
    and epidemiologists, in addition to physicians,
    dentists, and other scientists.
  • Funding for up to 5 years includes didactic and
    practical training in design, conduct, and
    analysis of clinical research
  • Each clinical research scholar may be recruited
    from within a grantee institution or externally
    and has two mentors

9
CAPS Program Goals
  • CAPS is more than a training program.
  • Goals
  • to train clinical researchers
  • to launch Scholars careers
  • to increase the number of interdisciplinary
    researchers who are working together

37
CAPS Mentoring and Evaluation
  • CAPS Mentoring Evaluation Director

38
CAPS Mentoring Evaluation
  • Why the emphasis on mentoring in this program
  • What do we know about effective mentoring
  • How the CAPS program facilitates an effective
    mentoring approach
  • How the CAPS program evaluated

39
Why Emphasis on Mentoring?
  • Faculty with mentors demonstrate higher levels
    of success on the following factors
  • Research productivity (Bland and Schmitz 1986,
    Byrne and Keefe 2002)
  • Professional socialization and interactions with
    colleagues (Corcoran and Clark 1984)
  • Salary levels and satisfaction with salary and
    promotion (Melicher 2000)
  • Teaching effectiveness, evidenced by declines in
    teaching anxiety and improved student ratings of
    teaching effectiveness (Williams 1991).

40
Not all Mentoring is alike
  • Effective faculty mentoring is a result of
  • Clarity of purpose
  • Systematic tasks and activities that the mentor
    and mentee do together not personal chemistry
  • Early and enduring mentoring is most beneficial
  • Regular meetings of the mentoring pairs/teams -
    which may require nudging
  • Using mentors from outside the mentees
    department is very effective
  • (Boyle and Boice, 1998)

41
CAPS Mentoring Teams
  • Mentoring teams include experienced clinical
    investigators
  • Teams are multidisciplinary and include a
    biostatistician
  • Mentors responsibilities are clearly delineated
