El objetivo de este trabajo es caracterizar la dinámica de los recursos humanos en investigación y su producción científica al interior de las comunidades de salud pública y ciencias básicas biomédicas del país. El enfoque de este estudio articula la evaluación del comportamiento de los recursos humanos y el tránsito hacia comunidades científicas, vistos desde la teoría del capital conocimiento (Jaramillo; 2006,2008), con la modelación de las carreras académicas de los investigadores (Dietz y Bozeman; 2005). En este sentido, se estiman los modelos Tobit y de Análisis Multinivel para analizar los Curriculum Vitae (CV) de 5.233 investigadores, utilizando la información suministrada por la Plataforma ScienTI-Colciencias (GrupLAC y CvLAC) actualizada a noviembre de 2007. Los resultados muestran como las carreras académicas de los investigadores en salud pública y ciencias básicas biomédicas difieren significativamente, lo cual se verá reflejado en las tasas de productividad, en la acumulación de experiencia para el desarrollo de las actividades de investigación y en consolidación y caracterización de cada comunidad científica.***The objective of this study is characterizing the dynamics of human resources in scientific research, and the scientific production within the communities of public health and biomedical sciences in the country. The methodology of this study articulates the performance assessment of human resources and transit toward scientific communities, based on the framework of the theory of knowledge capital (Jaramillo; 2006.2008), and the modelling of the academic careers (Dietz and Bozeman, 2005). In this sense, we estimate tobit models and multilevel models to analyze the Curriculum Vitae (CV) of 5.233 researchers. We use information supplied by ScienTI-Colciencias (GrupLAC and CvLAC) updated to November 2007. The results show how the academic careers of researchers in public health and biomedical sciences differ significantly from each other, which is evident when looking at rates of productivity and cumulative experience in the development of research activities inside each specific community.
