More Information

If you would like to participate as a mentee or a mentor please contact:

Constanza Gonzalez
Project Coordinator



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.

Trainees will be matched with an ASIP mentor (a Junior or Senior level ASIP member who is actively engaged with the organization), based on their interests and/or availability. In return, program participants will be asked to participate in the trainee welcome reception and have official pictures taken, which will be included in the trainee newsletter.

If you are interested in participating in this program because you will be a first-time attendee at the ASIP 2016 Annual Meeting in San Diego, please take a moment to contact Constanza Gonzalez and she will send you a short questionnaire. The results will help us make a suitable match to ensure your optimal guidance and participation. More in-depth information will be sent once pairing has been completed with your mentor.

What can you expect from your mentor?


  • You will be notified about the mentor pairing and will be given your mentor's contact information
  • You will have a certain time frame to contact your mentor before the annual meeting in San Diego, CA
  • You and your mentor can decide how frequent or in what way (via phone or e-mail, etc.) communication will occur before the annual meeting; at least one e-mail communication prior to the meeting is required
  • You and your mentor are required to meet at least once face to face at the meeting
  • Attendance at the trainee welcome reception with your mentor will be required so we can take a picture
  • You will also be asked to complete a write-up of your experience to be published in the Trainee Newsletter after the annual meeting
