Bioscience Careers at the Interface

Careers in bioscience require training in a broad range of areas such as biomaterials, food safety, electronics, nanotechnology, manufacturing, IT, quality control, forensics, and agriculture. We seek input from groups with expertise in these areas to address our shared challenges; coordinate multiple education programs; and raise student awareness of the richness, diversity, and multidisciplinary nature of bioscience careers. Participants will expand their knowledge base and network with others in a community of practice engaged in creating a shared resource for career exploration. Attendees need to bring their own laptops.
