As part of our ongoing commitment to improving global collaboration in the field of spinal cord injury (SCI) research, the SRI offers a Mentor Program for Early Career Researchers.
Mentoring in research can provide an individual with skills outside of their own organisation or institution and support growth beyond the resources available to them at their workplace. Through mentoring, researchers can develop skills that support them through the process of research design, writing and publication, as well as building collaboration opportunities.

Mentor Pilot Program 2019
The SRI launched a Mentor Pilot Program in 2019, with senior SCI researchers matched with SCI Early Career Researchers, to provide leadership, guidance and networking opportunities.
In the Pilot year of the Program, Dr Sintip Pattanakuhar, a Rehabilitation Physician at the Faculty of Medicine at Chiang Mai University in Thailand, was matched with Dr Leslie Morse, Head of the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Minnesota Medical School. Dr Pattanakuhar wants to transition from bench to clinical research and presented four research project ideas.
