Dear AAMP Members:
AAMP is the recipient of a NRMN supplemental grant that will help us advocate for institutional cultural change that values and incentivizes mentorship and will challenge the academic community to deliver on the promise of a diverse biomedical research workforce.
NRMN, funded by the National Institutes of Health, is a nationwide consortium of science professionals and institutions collaborating to provide students and scientists across all career stages of research in the biomedical, behavioral, clinical, and social sciences with enhanced networking, professional development, research resources and mentorship experiences.
As an NRMN mentee or mentor, you can:
Participate in mentorship in your field that directly addresses diversity, inclusivity, and culture through NRMN’s virtual mentoring platform.
Participate in synchronous and asynchronous online, as well as face-to-face, evidence-based training programs such as career coaching and train-the-trainer workshops.
Receive intensive coaching to develop a competitive grant proposal for a research project and/or research career development award in any biomedical or bio-behavioral discipline (this opportunity is targeted to post-doctoral fellows and early career faculty).
Learn about grant funding opportunities.
Stay up-to-date on NRMN's programming and nationwide diversity efforts through webinars, videos, news, and links to ongoing professional development opportunities.
Mentors can avail themselves of additional opportunities such as:
Get certified or participate in training opportunities that leads to a “NRMN Master Mentor” Certification. (Click on "Visit NRMNet today", then on "Our Programs", then "NRMN Mentor Certification")
Apply to become an NRMN “Coach-in-Training” for one of the network’s four intensive coaching programs for grant proposal writing and professional development. This opportunity is for more senior researchers who are committed to the career advancement of investigators from diverse backgrounds and desire to implement NRMN coaching models in the near future.
Students and researchers in the biomedical, behavioral, clinical, and social sciences:
