Careers in biomedical sciences forum set

The Office of Biomedical Research Education and Training (BRET) and the Graduate School at Meharry Medical College will host a two-day forum to offer graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and others a glimpse into non-traditional careers.

The “Career Opportunities in the Biological and Biomedical Sciences” Symposium will be held March 2 and 3 in 208 Light Hall and broadcast into rooms 202 and 214 for overflow seating.

Symposium speakers will introduce participants to careers in research and administration at pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies; clinical and forensic sciences; research, administration and teaching at four-year colleges; consulting and defense; science policy, writing and program management; and technology transfer.

Speakers from industry, government, academia and private foundations will be available to discuss career opportunities during break-out sessions at the symposium.

Registration is required, but the event is free for Vanderbilt and Meharry registrants.

For more information and to register for the forum, go to https://medschool.mc.vander-bilt.edu/career_symposium or contact Kim Petrie, Ph.D., at 322-6885.
