Targeting Cancer Care



At a time when competition for research funding is increasing, the development of solid mentor relationships early on in a scientist’s career is key to developing both the research base and the grant application skills that will launch the investigator’s career. NIH and NCI recognize the importance of mentors in career development for both clinicians and researchers, building into early-career grants an evaluation of mentors as well as potential award recipients.

ASTRO also appreciates the need for mentoring relationships and a review of candidate’s mentors and their capability to support the applicants as they launch their careers is built into the process of reviewing the Junior Faculty, Seed, and Minority Fellowship grant applications. ASTRO is continuing to evaluate how we can further promote the establishment of supportive mentor relationships.
