  • Questions to consider:

    • What is an optimal (or even acceptable) influx/egress rate? How would we determine it? How would we achieve it?

    • To add additional complexity:

      • How should we recognize the important role played by junior investigators who are not officially PIs but make significant contributions to the science?

    • Should we broaden definition of new investigator to include R21s? All RPGs? Or is R01 the only acceptable measure of “significant independent” research support?
