The Office of Biomedical Research
Education and Training, together with the Vanderbilt
Postdoctoral Association and the student chapter of
the Tennessee Biotechnology Association, is pleased
to present “Building on Basic Science: Careers
in the Biotechnology, Pharmaceutical, and Medical Device
This day-long event features panel
discussions with scientists who have pursued both conventional
(i.e. R & D) and unconventional (i.e. “business”-side)
careers in industry. Our keynote speaker will give an
overview of careers in industry and speak to common
perceptions about industry science. Then, our panelists
will take your questions during the panel discussions.
