Throughout our program, the transferable skills and global perspective of our trainees are honed through a series of professional development activities. The following opportunities seek to cover the breadth of what it means to be successful professional scientist today. We aspire to develop marketable skills, taking students beyond the traditional technical training paradigm and into a competitive class marked by intellectually flexible and authentic professional confidence.
A bi-annual student-run seminar series provides students with the opportunity to select, invite and host a speaker each semester and participate in a luncheon with the speaker after the seminar.
