Aug 7 GMS OPDPA Speaker Series: How to Ask the Right Questions When Transitioning From Academia to Industry
This message is from: Administrative Manager 617 638-5244
Location: BU School of Medicine Instructional Bldg. L-110

Thursday, August 7
3:30-5 p.m.
BUSM Instructional Building, Room L-110

The speaker: David Proia, PhD, has successfully transitioned from academia to industry and will be sharing his experience with postdocs and PhD students.

A career in the life sciences can be incredibly rewarding, more so if you are in the right environment with a solid leader. We have all seen or heard of the student who changed labs in their fifth year because of poor interactions with their mentor, the eight-year postdoc too afraid to move on, the senior research associate unable to progress to the scientist level because of degree requirements, or the scientist pigeonholed into doing the same type of work day in and day out. Some of these problems can be eliminated by doing due diligence prior to joining an academic lab or industry position and asking some key questions.
