AAS Virtual Mentor-Mentee Event

AAS Virtual Mentor-Mentee Event

The AAS Trainee Committee is pleased to announce their first virtual Mentor-Mentee event, wherein Trainees have the opportunity to network with other trainees and prominent researchers/clinicians in their field.

The event is scheduled for May 7th, 2021 at 10-11:30 am PST. 

During this event, trainees will have the opportunity to attend three 20-minute small group (≤4 trainees per mentor) discussions based on predetermined topics. Topics include:

  1. Being a woman in science
  2. Starting up and managing your own lab
  3. Research design and grant/manuscript writing
  4. Parenting and work-life balance while in a research career
  5. Non-academic/industry careers
  6. Careers/training in autonomic medicine


Please register before April 23rd, 2021 by clicking here. Please note that the registration survey asks trainees to rank the predetermined topics based on their individual interest. We will work to ensure trainees get their top rankings, however, this is dependent on registration numbers and available mentors. Registrants can expect a follow-up email with additional details about mentors, topic assignments, and a link to the virtual event.

Please forward this email and registration link to anyone you think may be interested or benefit from this networking event. Please note: Trainees do not need to be AAS members to attend.

We look forward to seeing you on May 7th!
