Mentoring advice….for the greybearded and bluehaired

November 1, 2010

Yes, my friends, mentoring goes up as well as down when you are a mid career scientist. Sometimes even the extremely well established named-chair University Professor of blah-de-blah needs a little reality check.
Fortunately, the good Comrade PhysioProf is here to help.

    How did Scarpa respond to you, Dr. F?

    I want those tapes.


  4. Dr. Feelgood Says:

    Scarpa accused us, in person, at one point of receiving confidential information from a study section after we found out a conflicted reviewer was allowed to review a grant. He was more interested in finding out how we found this out, and less interested in the SRO who allowed a douchebag to intentionally torpedo a competitors work when he was a already specifically conflicted out by us with the SRO.
    My personal view on him: Bureaucratic Bushy ball-licker

    My understanding is that you don’t automatically get to have a person prevented from reviewing your grant just because you claim that there is a conflict, Dr. F. Unless it is a clear case that follows under the firm rules.
