DF/HCC Mentor Training Program

Address to event

TMEC L-008 Conference Room
260 Longwood Ave
Boston, MA

Good science requires many hands. Most, if not all, principal investigators rely on their research groups to accomplish their projects. However, most scientists receive little to no management training. How do aspiring research leaders learn to engage and supervise other people in their work? How will YOU learn these skills?

This academic year, the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center and the HMS/HSDM Office of Postdoctoral Fellows will offer the NIH-supported National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) curriculum to provide evidence-based training for mentors working with undergraduates and high school students on short-term research projects across the DF/HCC community.

The curriculum will consist of monthly “lunch and learn” sessions that will provide leadership training in the following areas:

  • Aligning expectations and maintaining effective communication

  • Addressing equity and inclusion and navigating implicit bias

  • Strategies for enhancing and assessing understanding
