About the Author

Dr. Andrew I. Schafer is the E. Hugh Luckey Distinguished Professor and Chair of the Department of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College and Physician-in-Chief at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical Center. He is past president of the American Society of Hematology, the founding editor in chief of its publication, The Hematologist, and President-Elect of the Association of Professors of Medicine.


"In The Vanishing Physician-Scientist?, Dr. Andrew I. Schafer makes the case that truly effective translational research can go from bench to bedside and back again in dynamic fashion; he describes a view of the future in which physician-scientists will be members of research teams. This book does an excellent job of placing physician-scientists in historical context and highlighting the fact that the problem of the endangered physician-scientist is not a new one. The Vanishing Physician-Scientist? outlines a long-term problem that is likely to get worse, and, most important, provides a number of possible solutions.Given the current constraints-on NIH-funded research and an understandable retrenchment for funding by industry and foundations-its descriptions of strategies that have been successful in the past and are likely to be successful in the future are more valuable than ever."-Glenn Bubley, MD, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital and Harvard Medical School
