Dr. Greenbaum explains, “I joined the mentorship program because I’ve always enjoyed mentoring trainees and faculty in the United States, and the opportunity to mentor someone overseas was very appealing to me because I really liked the idea of giving back to people in other parts of the world.”

“It was incredibly fulfilling to see all that Priya accomplished. It’s especially fulfilling to see her now serving as a mentor and giving back to others.

Commenting on her experience as an ISN mentee, Dr. Pais said: “I gained a lot from Larry’s wisdom and perspective. He helped me every step of the way, gave me feedback and guided me on how to respond to reviewers. And I actually use that template today – I still very much value his magic!”
