unique contribution to funding basic biomedical research. No other funder of biomedical research has filled the void left by the Markey Trust. The committee believes that future funders of biomedical research, both private and public, should consider funding mechanisms that provide support for infrastructure, purchase of equipment, funds for faculty recruitment, and support of graduate students—with the flexibility to follow new leads and change directions.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
