“Pressures on principal investigators and their need of support: A consultation”
The role of PIs in sustaining the progress and robustness of research is critically important, and yet the pressures on them – some well advised, some not – seem to keep growing. To help Nature’s future coverage of these issues, I will present an overview of some of the key pressures on PIs and invite insights and proposals into how funders, universities and journals might best mitigate them
