ExCITE
Friday, August 28, 2020

As part of the ExCITe Series, leaders from the biotech firm Amgen want to share their experiences with you.

Hear from Amgen employees during a career panel and learn more about their work in:

  • Business Development
  • Clinical Biomarkers and Diagnostics
  • Global Regulatory Affairs
  • Intellectual Property and Litigation
  • R&D Operations
  • Translational Medicine

Afterward, join a small group breakout for a conversation with Amgen employees who once sat in your seat. Learn more about their journeys and the paths that brought them to their current roles.

This is your chance to explore careers away from the bench, ask questions, seek advice, and make connections with those further down their career path.

All Gladstone postdocs, graduate students, and RAs are invited to attend.

Register by August 21, 2020. Choose your top three breakout sessions in the registration form.

The Exploring Careers in Industry and Technology (ExCITe) series was created in 2018 to introduce trainees to career options away from the bench in various industry fields, and is presented by guest speakers working in those fields. The purpose is to provide trainees with the tools needed to make informed decisions about their career path when their training at Gladstone ends.
