Keck Graduate Institute Course

Modified: March 19, 2015

The American Society for Cell Biology is hosting the second edition of the Keck Graduate Institute course from July 12th-24th at the Keck Graduate Institute in Claremont, CA.  The course is designed for basic scientists considering a career in industry.  The programming offered in this course will introduce participants to skills they need to thrive in industry and will expose them to the culture, organizational structures, and practices of life science companies through MBA-style case-based classroom experiences, professional development workshops, and a team-based project. They will learn how the industry develops leads, organizes and conducts research and development, and shepherds compounds through to clinical trials.  More information is available here.

The KGI course will accommodate 40 graduate students and postdocs (international and domestic) who will receive free tuition, room and board, plus 50% of their travel costs.  Applications are due April 15th and the only stipulation is that applicants must be or become an ASCB member.
