“One of the most important things an investigator can do is to take active steps to ensure the next generation of investigators. My colleagues and I at the University of Pennsylvania have made this a major focus of our activities over the last 30 years. Many individuals we have trained are in faculty positions in multiple institutions in the United States and Canada. We have sought to do our part to ensure a robust pipeline of new investigators.”
