DCMB Industry Day

2:00 PM to 4:00 PM


All bioinformatics students and faculty are invited!

Have you ever wondered what it is like to work in the biotechnology industry?  Are you interested in hearing from industry insiders about how they got started and what skills employers are looking for today?  Please join us for the second annual DCMB Industry Day.  We will be having a roundtable discussion with our own alumni. You will have a chance to hear insider stories and have the opportunity to ask questions.  Following the roundtable, you will also have the opportunity to meet with the speakers  in small groups or one-on-one in breakout rooms.
