Commercializing the science that we do and ensuring that is done fairly is an important part of the scientific mission. Come learn from the different perspectives of PhDs who have pursued law-related career paths in the biotech industry, law firms, and academia. What opportunities exist for scientists in law-related professions? What are these careers like and are they right for you?
Organized by: Sherry Lee

Science Writing and the Spread of a Scientific Idea
Once experiments are completed and the paper submitted, how is that information communicated within a field--and to a larger audience? Come explore the diverse ways science is communicated outside the lab--in journalism, publishing, and industry.
Organized by David Kern and Zahra Hirji
Seth Mnookin - Author of the The Panic Virus, Will Knight, Anne Knowlton, Priya Prakash Buddle
Looking for a professorship is a daunting process. What type of institution is right for you? Where do you find information? What do search committees look for? What should you do at an interview?
