Use mentoring to fix science inequality
We suggest that mentorship is particularly important for scientists from the developing world. It can address the problem of science inequality while helping to resolve global issues.
Academics in developing countries are rarely able to take advantage of cutting-edge knowledge from leading universities, more than 90% of which are in high-income nations. Expenditure on research and development is typically less than 1% of gross domestic product — one-third of the amount spent by most developed nations.
