Developing strong independent researchers in health disparities is the goal of the MHRC Mentors Bureau, which recruits faculty investigators to provide guidance to those interested in advancing health equality.

The MHRC Mentors Bureau represents faculty investigators from UAB and partnering institutions who are matched with undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty in MHRC's training programs.

The mentoring relationship is beneficial to both mentors and mentees. Mentees gain insights from the experience of their mentors, enhance their knowledge, hone their scientific and technical skills, and learn about grant development and manuscript preparation. Mentors have in their mentees a valuable resource for carrying out research projects and preparing manuscripts for publication.

You may apply to be a mentor by contacting the UAB MHRC Training Program Director, Ann Smith (205) 934-9903.
