Mentorship and Alumni

Over my 30+ year scientific career, a major focus of the laboratory has been mentoring of students and fellows in the laboratory.  At present, there are usually between 12-14 post-doctoral fellows, 1-2 students, and 1 visiting scientist in the laboratory.  In total, about 150 fellows have trained in the laboratory, many of whom are now heads of their own laboratories or heads of Divisions or Departments.   

The basic aspect of training involves considerable one-on-one time between me and the trainee, as well as direct hands on experience with one or more research projects in the lab.  

I meet with each fellow individually each week, and have a weekly group meeting of all of the fellows in my lab, at which each presents her/his project other members of the lab, as well as the others groups with whom we share a data group (the labs of Mary-Elizabeth Patti, Rohit Kulkarni, Yu-Hua Tseng, and Laurie Goodyear).  Fellows and students are responsible for the design and execution of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and writing of papers.  They are also encouraged to submit abstracts to meeting for oral presentation annually and present their research at a Joslin-wide research seminar (over 125 attendees) at least once every 2 years.  

Fellows receive specific training from courses on the use of radioisotopes, animals and human studies (as appropriate), and also on the ethics of research.  Fellows/students are also encouraged to take other courses as appropriate and meet with collaborating investigators on a regular basis.  

Over 80% of the fellows who have trained in my lab are in academia or industry at leading institutions throughout the world.  The success of the trainees is the best documentation of the value of the training program.
