Exploring Non-Academic Careers in STEM

-

Online with OPD!

Whether you love hands-on research or can’t wait to hang up your lab coat for good, this event is for you! Learn about non-academic careers at and away from the bench from professionals who hold advanced degrees in areas such as biomedical engineering, chemistry, computational biology, kinesiology, molecular & cellular biology, PharmD, and toxicology. Our panelists span many roles (scientific R&D, data science, science communication, science policy, research administration, project management, medical affairs) across a variety of organizations (big pharma, start-ups, government, healthcare communications, consumer products). The morning will feature hands-on research in a variety of contexts, while the afternoon will focus on career paths away from the bench. Each session will include a 1-hour moderated panel, followed by optional opportunities for smaller discussions with panelists. Attend one or attend it all. Find more info and panelist bios on the OPD website.
