Advancing Science in Female Pelvic Health: Mentoring the Next Generation

This virtual session will focus on bringing together physician-scientists and basic scientists from various fields. This year, the symposium will focus on the importance of mentoring and the mentee-mentor relationship as a pathway for helping early investigators to establish a successful research program. The symposium will provide a forum for dynamic interactions between an interdisciplinary group of researchers, as well as between trainees and leaders in various fields. There will be a novel “Speed (dating) Networking” event with break-out sessions. During these sessions, led by Basic Science Subcommittee members and invited guests, the symposium will emphasize how to leverage mentoring relationships to advance your individual research programs and career.  The symposium will culminate with a brainstorming session to solicit suggestions for future initiatives to increase engagement among basic science researchers in female pelvic health. 

The Basic Science Symposium is free of charge but the advanced registration is required.

Registration for the Basic Science Day Program is Now Closed
