Investing in young Indonesian Researchers

Last week the article I submitted for The Jakarta Post was published on 22 August 2010. The issue was something dear to my life and work: that we need more young Indonesian researchers; and to accomplish that we need to invest in them.

The article was inspired by my experience with a mentor. He has always taken the time and energy to foster new generations of clinician-scientists. I recently realized, that to “produce” excellent scientists in Indonesia, a senior researcher has to be willing to make an investment. The mentor will have to invest his or her time, energy, patience and guidance, for years, in his or her students. There is no instant process of turning an average student into a leading scientist. Everyone must take part in investing in Indonesian young researchers.
