What we do
MentLife brings together experienced mentors and mentees within areas of Life-Science. We encourage interactions between academia and the Life-Science industry and offer opportunities for personal development. We also provide early career advice and access to national and international networks.
We do this in two ways – an annual Mentor Programme and a stand-alone programme of associated events. In the Mentor programme the emphasis is on one-on-one mentoring and networking. Our associated events include a comprehensive seminar programme addressing a variety of work-related topics proposed by the mentees and mentors. Our events also include study visits to pharmaceutical and biotech companies, encouraging discussion around areas of mutual scientific interest and potential career opportunities.
MentLife draws on the unique knowledge and expertise of the mentors and is designed to complement the existing mentoring and career programmes within Lund University.
The mentor programme runs over one year, and each spring we call for new applications.
