In this issue, we are asking for your reactions in four areas: staff scientists, Just Ask, Hot Methods Clinic, and alternative medicine. Send your responses on these topics or comments on other intramural research concerns to us via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org; fax: 402-4303; or mail: Building 1, Room 334.
1) In our next issue, we plan to publish NIH's new policy defining the role of
staff scientists, including facility heads. What have been your experiences
working with or being a staff scientist at NIH? How would you like to see policy
on these positions evolve?
2) In our new "Just Ask" column, we hope to dig out solutions to
quandaries about how to get things done in the intramural research program. What
questions or problems would you like to see addressed in future columns?
3) What suggestions or questions do you have about the Drosophila metastasis
model featured in this issue's Hot Methods Clinic? What suggestions do you have
for alternative techniques to avoid the use of radioisotopes?
4) We are working on an article about recent leadership changes at the Office of
Alternative Medicine and its new intramural research initiative. How would you
assess the general quality of research being done in the field? Do you think
there is a role for alternative-medicine research in your institute, center, or
division? Why or why not?
