Committee Sponsored Programs

ASIP Summer Research Opportunity Program in Pathology (SROPP)

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 Lisa McFadden.
