About this book

This comprehensive yet concise book introduces people at all levels of training—undergraduate, graduate, and medical students, residents, fellows, and junior faculty—to the basic joys and challenges of biomedical research. By discussing many key research issues, would-be and early-stage academics will not only be better informed about the world of biomedical research, but will learn a basic set of instructions to help jumpstart their careers. Biomedical Research: An Insider’s Guide is divided into five sections. The first focuses on decision points regarding whether or not to enter research and if so what type: basic, clinical, or translational. The second section focuses on the practicalities of pursuing medical research, including institutional review boards and animal care committees as well general suggestions regarding idea generation and collaboration. The third section covers a core aspect of research: writing—detailing the evolution of both grants and papers. The fourth section addresses a range of issues, including conferencing to patents to working with industry to obtaining philanthropic support. The final section deals with all-important broader life issues from job choices to being a mentor to thoughts on how to keep the big picture front and center. An invaluable resource that offers insightful, practical advice, Biomedical Research: An Insider’s Guide reveals how biomedical research can be both challenging and truly rewarding.

Reviews

“This is an introductory book for those beginning their careers in research. … This should be essential reading for everyone considering a career in research. The book provides extraordinary life lessons that could keep neophytes from making career-ending mistakes and make the entry into research a more gratifying experience.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2016)
