At our last session, some great ideas emerged about developing programs covering critical concepts for young scientists including: lab safety, notebook procedure, sterile cell culture, and sustainable lab practices. In this session we will discuss ways to implement in-person and online programs.

In addition we will share ongoing programs in development to benefit our early-career biotech community. This is a great way to get involved and impact the programs planned for 2018, 2019, and beyond. 

Each Roundtable session provides a platform for discussion and collaboration to address the changing requirements for life science careers. By bringing together stakeholders across academic institutions, research hospitals, and companies throughout the region, we strive to nurture cross-pollination that can drive improved outcomes for companies, educators, and the scientists who contribute to human health research.
