This led us to ask: \" Are mid-career investigators experiencing disproportionate difficulties in the advancement of their professional careers? \" Our portfolio analysis indicates that there has been a significant and evolving shift in the demographics of research project grant (RPG) awardees at NHLBI. In 1998, mid-career (ages 41–55) investigators constituted approximately 60% of all investigators with the remaining 40% being equally divided between early-stage (ages 24–40) investigators and established (ages 56 to 70 and older) investigators. However, since 1998, the proportion of established RPG awardees has been increasing in a slowly progressive and strikingly linear fashion. At the same time the propor-tion of early-stage awardees fell precipitously until 2006 and then stabilized. During the same period, the proportion of mid-career awardees, which had been relatively stable through 2006, began to fall significantly. In examining potential causes of these demo-graphic shifts we have identified certain inherent properties within the RPG award system that appear to promote an increasingly more established awardee population and a persis-tent decrease in the proportion of mid-career investigators. A collateral result of these demo-graphic shifts, when combined with level or declining funding, is a significant reduction in the number of RPG awards received by NHLBI mid-career investigators and a corresponding decrease in the number of independent research laboratories.", "link"=>"http://www.mendeley.com/research/shifting-demographics-among-research-project-grant-awardees-national-heart-lung-blood-institute-nhlb", "reader_count"=>12, "reader_count_by_academic_status"=>{"Professor > Associate Professor"=>1, "Researcher"=>5, "Student > Ph.
