... This delay runs the risk of discouraging promising young scientists from pursuing careers in biomedical research as they see greater opportunities for independence in other sectors. Moreover, new investigators may be less likely to engage in higher-risk research projects since they do not have the freedom to blaze their own path and must satisfy study sections that have an inherent bias toward research programs with a greater probability of 118

... It is impossible to make informed programmatic decisions without accurate numbers of who is being supported, by what mechanism, and with what impact. In this report, the committee has considered three different stages of biomedical careers -- postdoctoral training, the transition to independence itself, and the establishment of stable research programs -- and it offers recommendations appropriate to each career stage (Figure 7-1)

While biomedical career pathways are still quite complicated, the report helps to move researchers from postdoctoral positions to that of independent investigator.
