Roy And Diana Vagelos Education Center, 104 Haven Ave., New York, NY 10032 Room/Area: 401

This event is aimed at all postdocs wondering about career transitions into the Bio / Pharmaceutical industry, or career transitions in general. 

We are hosting 4 recent post-docs from Columbia University: 

-Dr. Harvey Chin (now Scientist @ Novartis)

-Dr. Justine Kupferman(now Scientist @ Kallyope)

-Dr. Yu “Jerry” Zhou (now Scientist @ Pfizer)

-Dr. Jennifer Haghpanah(now Scientist @ L’Oreal

They were in your same position just a few years ago (2015, 2017)! 

They will answer all your questions about the critical steps for transitioning into industry coming from a postdoc in academia, how their work day looks like, the pros and cons of their jobs and if and why they are happy with their decision to transition. 

The event is in the form of Panel Discussion, with questions from the moderators, and then from the audience, followed by a Networking session with Post-Doc Happy Hour where you can ask all your other questions directly to the speakers!

The Networking session is jointly organized with the CUMC CUPS Happy Hour (6:30pm-8:00pm).
