Mentorship Program:
Professionals, Professors, Postdocs, Grad Students, & RAs: Come Join the Discussion!

Ever wondered how someone runs a lab, yet still has a life? How to talk to your cranky advisor (or advisee) in a more constructive manner? Or how people transition between academia and industry?

Once again this year we have multiple mentorship sessions focused on many of the non-scientific issues that are critical to a successful and fulfilling scientific career.

So run out, grab a lunch to go, and then come join us in these open discussions.

A full schedule of offered mentorship sessions will be posted prior to the MidWinter Meeting.
