The Senate health committee recommended a bill today that would improve opportunities for new researchers in the United States.

The “Next Generation Researchers Act” (S. 2014), sponsored by Sens. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., and Susan Collins, R-Maine, was created to establish an initiative within the office of the director of the NIH to support and encourage new opportunities for young researchers as well as earlier research independence. These include training opportunities for those seeking careers in research, mentorship programs, efforts to provide diversity in the workforce and assistance for new researchers seeking funding renewals.
