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.

Since 2009, the National Postdoc Association recognizes and raises awareness of the contributions that postdocs make to scientific research and discovery. Each year, Postdoctoral and Graduate Student Education and Research Development Affairs, and the Gladstone Postdoctoral Advisory Committee (GPAC), organize a week of activities to celebrate and support Gladstone’s postdoc community. This year, activities focus on making in-person connections, by meeting faces both new and old.

At Gladstone, we are committed to providing events and professional development activities that resonate with our community’s diverse members. Our goal is to develop creative programming that encompasses a wide variety of ideas and perspectives to inspire, educate, and engage with everyone within our walls.

We want to effect positive change through our events and activities by providing a platform for discussions on important topics related to increasing diversity and inclusiveness in the sciences.
