ASIP Summer Research Opportunity Program in Pathology (SROPP)

ASIP and the Committee for Career Development and Diversity started SROPP to provide summer research opportunities in pathobiology for underrepresented minority students by providing financial support for students to visit, learn, and participate in new research in the mechanisms of disease at prominent research laboratories and institutions during the summer.

The ASIP Committee for Career Development and Diversity has created PathFinders, a new mentoring opportunity for first-time attendees to the ASIP Annual Meeting (at Experimental Biology). This program was created to offer guidance and build camaraderie between ASIP trainees and regular members and offer guidance to trainees who attend the meeting without their institutional advisor. By leveraging the guidance and expertise of current ASIP members, this program will allow trainees to be introduced to the Society on a more personal level, and to maximize their conference experience.

The ASIP Committee for Career Development and Diversity is pleased to announce the launch of a new "Year Round Mentoring Program" for Junior Faculty and Senior Post-Docs. Mentoring is critical to the continued growth of any scientific discipline and ASIP recognizes that we can play an important role in fostering these relationships among our members. Mentorship can provide career development, professional skills growth, and even grant preparation assistance. To sign up for the program as a mentor or a mentee please contact Constanza Gonzalez.

F-Troop...2.0: The Fellowship Grant Mentor Program

Did you enjoy ASIP's Program, F-Troop? Are you looking for guidance on the Fellowship Grant writing process? We can help! ASIP is offering an opportunity at the ASIP 2016 Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology for you to get personalized feedback from an established researcher. One-on-one meetings will be conducted at the ASIP 2016 Annual Meeting in San Diego. You will have the opportunity beforehand to communicate with your assigned Fellowship Grant Mentor to decide what assistance would be most valuable on-site. Fellowship Grant Mentors can assist with you with a grant you are currently writing or provide general insight into the process of preparing your fellowship grant application. If you would like to be assigned a mentor and a time to meet with them at the ASIP 2016 Annual Meeting, please contact Constanza Gonzalez.
