Study after study underscore the key role mentoring plays in career development. Mentors serve as sources of advice, information, encouragement, and support to junior colleagues. Mentors can be the first link to building a network with other scientists; they can provide constructive criticism and be an advocate for the junior colleague in professional activities.
