Symposium Highlights Opportunities for Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Fellows

Modified: September 11, 2017

Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the biomedical field gathered last week for an all-day symposium dedicated to showcasing research and exploring careers in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries, as well as academia.

The event, “Current Research and Future Careers Symposium,” was co-hosted by the Northwestern University Postdoctoral Forum (NUPF), an organization dedicated to creating community among postdoctoral fellows, and Northwestern’s BioProfessionals career development program.

“We wanted to ensure that all postdocs and graduate students at Northwestern understand that academia, though an excellent path, isn’t the only path, and that there is a diversity of intellectually challenging and fulfilling careers out there,” said Dean Procter, PhD, chair of NUPF and an organizer of the event, as well as a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Derek Walsh, associate professor of Microbiology-Immunology.
