“Support by the Mentoring Academy G12 provided an essential bridge between my initial startup
funding and successful application for extramural funding. This support greatly helped launch by career by enabling my lab to generate preliminary data that formed the part of the foundation of successive NIH SC1 and now R35 grant awards totaling more than 3 million dollars.” 
— Jason DeBruyne, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Pharmacology & Toxicology at Morehouse School of Medicine

The Mentoring Academy of the Morehouse School of Medicine was very beneficial to my development as a researcher and PI. They took the time to inculcate in me the nuances involved in managing a research project. I will always be grateful to the mentoring provided by the Academy and will enjoin others to go through the same process.

Successful mentorship is vital to career success and satisfaction for both mentors and mentees. Due to the current unique challenges in institutions with low mentor/mentee ratios, there is evidence that ineffectively structured mentoring may have resulted in inconsistent or low rates of career success when compared to institutions having well developed mentoring programs. We at Morehouse School of Medicine have developed a Mentoring Academy Model that allow us to address this issue.”Dr. Winston Thompson, Chair, Physiology Department, Morehouse School of Medicine
