13 Speakers Participate in Genomics Career Day: 5/20/11


The first IIGB Career Day was scheduled on Friday, May 20, 2011 at the Genomics building where 13 speakers from academia, industry, science writing and patent law shared experiences and insights regarding their chosen career paths.

The day started at 10am, ended at 4:30pm and included lunch and refreshments. Of the 100 attendees, there were 57 graduate students, 22 postdocs and 21 additional academic researchers at the sessions that were held in the Genomics building auditorium and interactive rooms (Rooms 1102A, 3102, 4102). In order to stimulate interactivity and an informal climate fostering discussion and questions, the speakers were divided into groups of five in sessions lasting 1.5 hours, and rotated among three groups of approximately 30 attendees each.
