Advance Team Science (cross-cutting theme)

We recognize that scientific endeavors increasingly involve multiple disciplines and people with a different skills and expertise. The academic world lags behind in continuing to promote investigator “independence” for promotion and advancement. NIDCR could help promote team science and collaboration by providing more recognition for the key contributions of all the critical team members in addition to PIs and co-PIS, and provide training/guidance in being good team leaders and team members.
