Shirley Tilghman: The 75 Year-Old Idea We Need Now

Science Clear+Vivid Podcast

Shirley Tilghman finds inspiration in the report delivered to President Roosevelt 75 years ago. It was called Science: The Endless Frontier, and it spurred the curiosity driven research that fueled America’s leadership in science and technology. We need to follow that advice again, she argues. Tilghman, the first woman president of Princeton University from 2001 to 2013, tells Alan that the importance of basic research is something, “we forget at our peril.”Support the show: https://www.patreon.com/clearandvividSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Shirley Tilghman: The Malthusian Dilemma in Biomedical Research

iBiology Career and Professional Development

Shirley Tilghman talks about a Malthusian dilemma in biomedical research. For almost a decade, available research dollars has stayed the same or decreased, while the number of awarded PhDs has risen rapidly. This has resulted in an increase in training times for graduate students and post-docs that are trying to move up the system - a phenomenon she calls a “bulging pipeline.” Toward the end of her talk, Dr. Tilghman presents several concrete solutions to begin to address the impending unsustainability of the biomedical workforce. http://www.ibiology.org/biomedical-workforce/shirley-tilghman-the-malthusian-dilemma-in-biomedical-research.htmlSpeaker Biography:Shirley Tilghman is the President Emerita and Professor of Molecular Biology at Princeton University. Dr. Tilghman is a strong visionary and leader in academic research and higher-level education. As President of Princeton University for 13 years (2001-2013), she implemented policies and initiatives that supported better training of Princeton students and increased diversity in the faculty and student body. She participated in the National Institutes of Health Biomedical Research Workforce Working Group in 2012, and has voiced her concerns about the future of biomedical research in meetings and publication (Alberts B, Kirschner M, Tilghman S, and Varmus H, PNAS 2014).
