Mentorship Program

The SfRBM Mentorship Program is organized and facilitated by the Professional Development Committee

The Professional Development Committee is dedicated to helping young scientists advance their career and have more opportunities not only the industry but SfRBM, as well. Towards that, they have developed a mentoring program which matches young scientists with a mentor who is already established. This program is open to ALL SfRBM members!
