Before joining the Mentorship Program, Dr. Nanyunja described herself as “a research novice with limited skills in scientific writing.” She wanted to develop clinical research skills to create evidence-based guidelines and policies to enhance Uganda’s basic and clinical research capacity in nephrology. She sought a mentor through the ISN Mentorship Program to receive guidance on structuring and submitting clinical research papers.
