NIDDK Director's Update Summer 2014

The Director

Director's Note

At NIDDK, we strive to help researchers grow at all stages of their careers.  NIDDK’s labs have a long-held tradition of offering a supportive research environment to trainees from the local community and around the world – a culture of mentorship typified by our Phoenix Epidemiology and Clinical Research Branch, as you’ll read about later in this issue.
Throughout NIDDK, leaders such as Dr. Sue Yanovski of the Division of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition – who is featured later in this issue – exemplify the role of a strong mentor, providing guidance to both new and more established researchers.  For Dr. Yanovski, mentoring is paying it forward: she cites the support she received when she started at NIDDK years ago as instrumental to her desire to mentor others now.  More »​​​​​
