Mentor Advisory Group

Guidance from respected mentors

Pathway Scientists are selected by a Mentor Advisory Group—a collection of eminent scientists from diabetes and other fields who will seek in our applicants the core elements for exceptional science: rigorous thought processes, keen intellect, and capacity for innovation, creativity, and productivity. The Mentors/Advisors also provide ongoing scientific and career advice, creating a challenging and collaborative environment for transformative science to thrive. We also invite business leaders and donors who support the Pathway scientists to give career and general guidance, providing broader perspectives.
