Congratulations to Michael Pulia, MD, MS on his recent admission into the MATRIX (Mentoring to Achieve Research Independence) program. MATRIX is an intensive 9-month mentoring program coordinated by the School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH) and designed to help faculty members (mentees) successfully land their first National Institute of Health (NIH) R01 Research Project Grant or equivalent.
The MATRIX program recognizes the importance of good mentoring and represents an effort to establish a structured annual preparatory course that will enable mentoring and research development. Coaches (mentors) will be paired with mentees in this program. The first cohort will launch in January 2020.
