Graduate Training in Developmental Biology
This NIH funded training program is designed to train the next generation of developmental biologists to advance our understanding of developmental processes and thereby make it possible to harness the promise of stem cell therapy. The mission of the training program is to provide predoctoral trainees with the background knowledge, research skills, and career development activities needed today to successfully compete for academic and science-related careers. Specifically, the training aims to foster independent and critical thinking and the ability to initiate, lead and be an active participant in scientific discussions. At the same time, since launching a traditional independent academic research career is becoming increasingly difficult, the training also provides various professional developmental activities ranging from advanced writing seminars to opportunities for job-shadowing internships in the private or clinical sectors.
Join us on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 in 252 BRB II/III from 10am-3:30pm for research talks from our current trainees. A detailed scheduled can be seen here. The day-long event will conclude with a Keynote Seminar from Dr. Alexander Schier from Harvard University. His talk will be held in the BRB II/III Auditorium at 4pm. See poster here.
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Alex Schier, Harvard University
