    I am looking for a good mentor in the fore mentioned topic.

    Has anyone worked with someone doing this type of research that was an inspiring or awesome person to work for/ with?

    looking for name, med school affiliation, website?

    Thanks

    Are you willing to travel anywhere in the country and just to be with a "good" mentor? I don't think that's necessary at all, especially considering that every med school has people doing research in autoimmunity and cancer. Look for local people, they don't have to be national figures for you to work with them. It's your project, not your mentor's reputation, that will get you anywhere.

    I was looking for feedback on a great personality to work with, not just someone doing the research. I was hoping someone has worked with someone they highly recommend.....?

    I'm in the process of applying, and trying to do some research.


    thanks.
