Mentee Writing Group

The manuscript-focused and grant-focused groups provide mutual support and accountability as we all work towards increasing our writing productivity while decreasing our stress!  We will help each other set reasonable goals and share strategies for success.

If you wish to join the next 10-week mentee writing group session, please contact mentoring programs.

    • Clinical Track Meeting
      These meetings function as "in-house" study sections and are extremely valuable to mentees as they develop their specific aims, revise their grant applications and flesh-out ideas for applications.

      The Clinical Track meetings are held the fourth Monday of every month from 3p.m.-4p.m. in 607 Kidston.

    • Lab Track Meeting
      All are welcome to attend our monthly lab track research meetings - mentees need not be specializing in GI or immunology or have labs. These meetings serve as in-house study sections where investigators take turns presenting their specific aims or summary statements and the group provides constructive criticism. Come and observe if you're interested or email to inform the office of date you'd like to reserve to discuss your research.

      The Lab Track meetings are held the second Wednesday of every month from 9a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in 402 Cohn.
