Building Up Scholars’ Poster Session
July 20 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm EDT
Sponsored by University of Pittsburgh in collaboration with MGH
Special seminar of the Building Up Scholars presenting their research projects.
A poster session to showcase the research of the National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) Scholars. The NRMN scholars are participating in a study that is focused on diversifying the workforce. This study is funded by NIH and is randomizing 26 universities to test the effectiveness of an intervention focused on building the research careers of postdocs and junior faculty, which was developed at the University of Pittsburgh.
A total of 26 institutions across the United States varying in size and current levels of diversity have agreed to participate in the NIGMS-funded trial.
The trainees participating in the program take part in specific course work and collaborative sessions, receive mentoring in a supportive environment, and have been given opportunities to network with senior investigators and their peers through structured events.
