“Mentoring is important to me. It feels like paying forward all the help, advice, and time I have been given over my years as a student. Plus I learn about a new bit of science depending on what their research is.”

“My mentor was fantastic; he provided excellent advice about how to make effective and informative posters, how to meet new people and who to talk to, and introduced me to some of the students that he worked with in the past.”

“I had a very good experience with my mentor. They were very insightful and thoughtful. When they couldn't answer my questions, they put me in contact with people who could.”
