Box 13901Research Triangle Park, NC 27709-3901www.bwfund.orgAcknowledgmentsThe course on which this manual is based wasconceived and driven by Maryrose Franko (HowardHughes Medical Institute) and the late and muchmissedMartin Ionescu-Pioggia (BWF), and this bookowes much to—and draws from—the manual producedfrom that course, Making the Right Moves: A PracticalGuide to Scientific Management for Postdocs andNew Faculty. We are grateful to the team which builtthe earlier manual and to HHMI for making it easy forus to move ahead with Excellence Everywhere.Thank you to the scientists who are quoted throughoutthis book. They have provided personal insightsand frank comments without which this book wouldbe much diminished. Many, many other researchersfrom around the world—too many to list- providedinformal input and critical reading of drafts, and wethank them all for their time and for helping us makethis manual a resource worth sharing.Thanks especially to patient colleagues Jill Conleyand Maryrose Franko at the Howard Hughes MedicalInstitute and Barbara Sina at the Fogarty InternationalCenter of the U.S. National Institutes of Health fortheir long term encouragement, support, and helpover the course of this project, and to HHMI editorPat Davenport for helpful comments throughout theprocess. Thanks to HHMI and to the Wellcome Trustfor access to their international awardee networks,and to Jimmy Whitworth and Pat Goodwin at theWellcome Trust for helpful discussions. Thanks toscience writers Heather B. McDonald and ChristopherThomas Scott, who provided some additional writing.Appreciation to Queta Bond, president emeritus nowof BWF, who has been a great supporter of this work.Finally, deep gratitude to Dan Colley, StephanieJames, and Michael Gottlieb, who on seeing theU.S.-focused Making the Right Moves in 2005 told us“You need to make one of these for the rest of theworld.” Who can resist such good advice from suchwise people?
