The Serotonin Club recognizes the importance of mentoring to the professional development of junior scientists. The Mentoring Program provides formal opportunities for young investigators to benefit from access to experienced researchers. Any student or post-doctoral fellow interested may apply to the Mentoring Program. This program is not restricted to those receiving travel awards. Application to the Mentoring Program includes a submitted abstract, a supporting letter from the trainee’s mentor or training program director, and a resume. Before the meeting, mentor-mentee pairs will be provided with contact information to facilitate introductions, interactions and dialogue. The Mentor Program officially starts with a breakfast meeting on the first day of the conference. At this breakfast, mentees will be introduced to the Council of the Serotonin Club and to their mentor for the meeting, and they will be introduced to the meeting delegates at large as part of the opening remarks. Mentors will be selected from the Council and Club membership to most appropriately match the mentee’s background and research area. The primary role of the mentor includes sharing career/professional experiences (e.g. grant writing, career choices) and social networking. Mentor-mentee pairs are encouraged to attend sessions together.
