Pediatric Physician-Scientists Struggle for Funding

MGood.jpg

A new, multicenter study that included Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis has found that most NIH grants awarded to researchers in pediatrics during the past five years have been limited to physicians in senior positions at a small number of institutions. The findings indicate an overall downward trend in funding for pediatric research, particularly among early-career physician-scientists.

Fueling Victory in the NCAA Football Playoffs

Heading into this football season, 67% of Power 5 conference universities employed at least one full-time sports dietitian and had for at least three years. Currently, 72% of those programs employ at least two full-time sports dietitians, a long road from only eight full-time positions in 2004 when Bragg got her start. There has long been an understanding in sports dietetics that by doing a great job to establish the importance of nutrition on performance within a program, you are thereby teaching the next generation of coaches to value fueling as well. An established bit of advice to sports dietitians regarding growth advises ‘the best way to get your next job, is to be great at the one you already have’. The work these four dietitians have done within their respective programs continues to lay the groundwork for more sports dietitians to find their next job and make their mark in collegiate athletics.

Moonshot Grant Will Help Researchers See Two of Cancer’s Key Food Sources at Once

Imagine trying to take a picture of a runner, but only being able to see her feet. If you could see her whole body, you’d get the full picture of how she uses both legs to put one foot in front of the other to reach top speed. That’s the idea behind a cancer imaging project in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, and the researchers just received $1.4 million in funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as part of the Cancer Moonshot to help the effort along.
