Below (in attach file area)  are a few articles discussing the emergence of the new field of Life Science Educator. 

I also found that in the field of Engineering, Engineering Education Researchers have recently emerged and organized.  They could provide the template for our growth.

Article discusses the historical emergence of the field of Engineering Education Research, the growing pains associated, and the vision and path they have established for their future.

MIlestones:
The Center for the Advancement of Scholarship on Engineering  Education (CASEE) began in 2002 as the first operating center of the National Academy of Engineering.

National Engineering Education Research Colloquies in 2006

2008 International Research in Engineering Education Symposium (REES) in Davos, Switzerland.

Borrego, Maura; Streveler, Ruth; Miller, Ronald; Smith, Karl. (2008) A New Paradigm for a New Field:
Communicating Representations of  Engineering Education Research. Journal of Engineering Education 97(2):147-162.

"Based on a three-year experience of developing, facilitating, and assessing NSF-funded workshops on Rigorous Research in Engineering Education (RREE), the authors present four representations of engineering education scholarly work in the United States, specifically teaching and research."
