IPAS ECR wins 2018 Emerging Leadership Mentored Development Program
Congratulations to Dr Jiawen Li who was successfully awarded 2018 FHMS Emerging Leadership Mentored Development Program. Dr Li will be mentored by world-renowned scientists in cardiovascular research Prof Stephen Nicholls and Dr Christina Bursill for the next 12 months on developing the novel device to enable accurate detection of high risk atherosclerotic plaques which are likely to cause acute coronary events, one of the most common cause of death in middle and high income countries worldwide.
The Emerging Leadership Mentored Development Program is designed to foster a productive mentor-mentee relationship between an ECR/MCR (mentee) and a senior academic staff member (mentor). The ECR/MCR will work closely with mentors of their choice to co-develop a new area of research and build their track record. The mentors will work closely with the applicant throughout the process and help the ECR/MCR to develop a strategic pathway, skills and independence necessary to make them competitive for local or national funding schemes (i.e. NHMRC investigator, new idea and synergy grants or equivalent schemes).
