CBBRe Hosts National Research Mentoring Network Workshop

VERMILLION, S.D. – The University of South Dakota’s Center for Brain and Behavior Research (CBBRe) will host a workshop introducing the National Research Mentorship Network (NRMN) Wednesday, May 3.

Beginning at 3 p.m. in room 105 of the Lee Medical building, Brian Burrell, Ph.D., and Robin Miskimins, Ph.D., will present best practices for mentoring undergraduate students, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty for all the sciences, not just biomedical fields. This workshop will introduce the resources of the NRMN. Training mentors to work with individuals from diverse backgrounds and thereby increase diversity among the scientific workforce is a key component of the curriculum. The NRMN is funded by the NIH.

CBBRe workshops are held, during the school year, on the first Wednesday of each month and aim to bring students, staff and faculty together for discussion and collaboration.
