New Newsletter Out Now!

Please check out our newest newsletter, which focuses on science mentorship in academia. Inside, we dive into the state of mentorship, focusing on its flaws and in solutions that we as a community must take to fix them, and interviews with postdocs, research assistants, and the winners of our Best Mentor Awards for their insights into what it takes to be a successful mentor. These and so much more await you inside!

  • full name and lab
  • title of the course
  • date of the event (must be scheduled between April 2020 and December 2020)
