The National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN)


The National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN), funded by the National Institutes of Health, is a nationwide consortium of science professionals and institutions collaborating to provide students and scientists across all career stages of research in the biomedical, behavioral, clinical, and social sciences with enhanced networking, professional development, research resources and mentorship experiences. NRMN’s mission is to utilize structured mentorship and networking experiences to enhance the training and career development of individuals from diverse backgrounds, communities, and cultures who are pursuing biomedical and behavioral research careers.

NRMN offers a wide range of free mentorship and professional development programming to students and researchers, including:

  • NRMNet: a virtual mentorship platform that pairs mentors and mentees from around the nation, and offers weekly discussions with topics that emphasize diversity, inclusitivity, and professional development.

  • Intensive grant writing coaching groups from grant writing basics to advanced proposal tactics.

  • Training on maximizing the effectiveness of mentorships as a mentor or a mentee, including programs for certifications such as "NRMN Master Mentor" and training on facilitating and implementing your own mentorship programs at your institution.

NRMN aims to support greater diversity within the NIH-funded workforce by implementing programming based on curriculum that evidence suggests will affect persistence and success in a career in the sciences. You can learn more about the NIH's commitment to diversity here.
