Let's Talk Careers Beyond Academia

Our goals with this workshop series are to introduce graduate students and postdocs to various career opportunities beyond the scope of academia. We have invited scientists, many of which are Cornell alumni, from various organizations to speak and answer questions about their career paths in a microbiology or related field. You are welcome to submit questions prior to the event to be asked anonymously via the moderator in addition to the Q&A period and networking lunch in which you will have the opportunity to interact more intimately with our speakers.

Please note that we have two additional speakers in order to cover a more diverse group of career paths:

Chris Dagdigian, Co-Founder, Senior Director, Consultant, BioTeam
Diana Lamppu, Global Program Management and Strategic Planning, Homology Medicines
