In a recent post, the NIGMS Feedback Loop Blog reports, "We’re pleased to announce the launch of MyNRMN, a free, web-based platform designed to help biomedical researchers and students across the United States connect professionally. MyNRMN is part of the National Research Mentoring Network, which NIGMS manages for the NIH Common Fund’s Diversity Program Consortium.

MyNRMN is designed for scientists at every career level. Faculty in more senior roles and established researchers can sign up as mentors. Early career faculty can serve as mentors or be mentees, depending on their needs. Undergraduates, graduate students and postdocs can elect to be peer mentors or sign up to be mentored. The connections you form through MyNRMN might be as simple as asking a question to scheduling formal mentoring sessions.

Some of MyNRMN’s features include:

  •     Browsing other registrants’ profiles to connect with people who have similar interests (as on social media sites).
  •     Sharing documents and sending direct messages to your connections.
  •     Creating a personalized calendar to schedule mentee/mentor meetings and electing whether you would like to receive text message reminders.
  •     Revising and improving your resume with the CV Builder tool (for mentees).
