pd|hub participates in National Academies' workshop on R&D workforce

Date Posted: Monday, October 16, 2023

pd|hub’s Cynthia Fuhrmann and Bill Lindstaedt join Ken Maynard (former pd|hub steering committee member) and other leaders in biomedical research at the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine this week as panelists for the two-day workshop, Preparing the Future Workforce in Drug Research & Development. Convened by the Forum on Drug Discovery, Development, and Translation and Roundtable on Black Men and Black Women in Science, Engineering, and Medicine,  the workshop brings together stakeholders to consider what is needed to address critical gaps in the drug R&D workforce—particularly in clinical research and clinical trials—and develop a workforce that is resilient, culturally aware, anti-racist, and interdisciplinary.

The workshop is broadcast via Zoom and open to the public, and subsequent proceedings published for distribution by the National Academies. Full details.
