New IUPS mentoring program: seeking mentors

The IUPS is introducing a mentoring program that will pair early-career physiology educators in Africa with two mentors, one from Africa and one from outside of Africa.

Names of potential mentors (or questions about the program) can be emailed to the co-chair of the task force: Susan Barman ( and Simiat Elias (
