Pathways to Careers in MPT Research & Development

The IMPT organizes virtual networking sessions among mentors and trainees to foster the development of next generation reproductive health professionals, including MPT researchers.

Most recently, the IMPT coordinated breakout sessions coinciding with the Annual NICHD Contraceptive Research Branch (CRB) Meeting to allow postdoctoral trainees, graduate students, and undergraduate students to explore different career pathways in the contraceptive field by connecting with experts like agency administrators, health-based entrepreneurs, and more.
