Our twice-yearly speed networking events always draw a big crowd, and we know that many of you in academia are interested in transitioning to industry. We’re joining these two concepts for our December 3rd event (thanks to MO BIO’s Suzanne Kennedy for the idea!).
If you’ve never been to a speed networking event, it’s pretty simple: come with lots of business cards and your 30 second elevator speech, and you’ll meet at least 25 professionals in one night! See a review of one of our earlier speed networking events for more details. For this event, we’re encouraging industry folks to come as mentors, so we’re giving everyone the ‘academic’ rate of $20. We’ll also organize the event to maximize interactions between academics and industry. We’ve asked three professionals to talk about their transition to industry, and they will help answer questions you’ve asked during registration. Join us!
|Kevin Harvey, Ph.D., Sr. Manager, Bioinformatics at EMD Millipore|
|Linda Robertson, Ph.D., Regulatory Affairs Executive|
|Mark Title, Ph.D., CTO, Advanced Technology Leadership|
