The European Neuromuscular Centre (ENMC) was founded in 1992 by a group of European patient associations to bring leading researchers and clinicians from all over the world together. It has for many years run an Early-Career Workshop Programme and, building on that success, we are now pleased to announce the launch of a new initiative; the Mid-Career Mentoring Programme.
The new Mid-Career Mentoring Programme is conceived to support and prepare talented and committed neuromuscular specialists for transdisciplinary, cooperative leadership, thereby promoting innovation and progress of future neuromuscular research. These individuals will be at the stage in their careers where they are developing their own research plans and are establishing their own teams and collaborative networks. Scope of the mentoring programme is to empower these mid-career professionals and prepare them for independent leadership, most importantly increasing their chances of reaching high positions where they have the possibility to open up tenure-track perspectives for the next generations. With the two programmes in place, ENMC provides learning support to the entire spectrum of rising stars in the neuromuscular field, from PhD students to research group/clinical unit heads.
