ISN Mentoring Partnership Awarded Clinical Research Grant to Complete Research Project – Inspired? Apply as a Mentee by July 1!

Dr. Stefano Picca mentored Dr. Sukanya Govindan from March 2021 until September 2022.

Dr. Govindan’s goal was to develop a research proposal on neonatal acute kidney injury and gain experience in grant writing and submission to obtain research funding. She also wanted to acquire skills to conduct a randomized control trial.

During the first year of their mentorship collaboration, Dr. Govindan and Dr. Picca held in-depth discussions on modifying their trial protocol and other components of the research proposal.

They successfully carried out a pilot/feasibility trial of the proposal and submitted this alongside the results to the ISN Clinical Research Program. Dr. Govindan commented, “Thanks to the mentorship of Dr. Picca and the work done so far, our grant proposal was selected for funding by the ISN.”

Dr. Govindan and Dr. Picca have extended their mentorship until 2026 to collaborate on their clinical research project.
