Perspective from NRMN U24 Leadership 
The National Research Mentoring Network was established by the National Institutes of Health to promote diversity in the biomedical sciences. As Phase II starts ramping up we reflect on our accomplishments, including thousands of individuals who participated in our online mentorship programs or trained in mentoring and grantsmanship. 
NIGMS - New NRMN Funding Announcement
MyMentor is Back! Read about the Newly Integrated
Guided Virtual Mentoring Platform
During Phase 1 of NRMN, two virtual communities were introduced:  MyMentor for guided virtual mentoring and MyNRMN for networking. While these two communities provided much-needed resources for the STEM community, we knew there was a way to make them better and easier for the NRMN members to use.  Thus, thanks to user feedback and NRMN's consistent drive to improve, MyMentor has been integrated into MyNRMN creating one NRMN Virtual Community.
