Friday evening's events are required attendance events, exclusively for recipients of the ASBMB Graduate Minority and Graduate/Postdoctoral Travel Awards. All others are welcome to register for Saturday's Professional Development Program for Trainees (see below).

TRAVEL AWARD PROFESSIONAL NETWORKING EVENT

On Friday, travel awardees will be arriving in Boston from all over the world.  Tired from a long day of travel, or charged with nerves, we'll energize the crowd and burn off any nervous energy with a fun, fast-paced, networking activity.  From the very start of the meeting, we'll get everyone meeting, talking, and networking.  Join us with an open mind and a positive attitude. 

Event is invitation only for our travel award recipients. 

POSTER SESSION, PART I

Following the opening networking event, Graduate Minority and Graduate/Postdoctoral Travel Awardees will present their research to fellow recipients and continue networking with peers. Poster Session, Part II is hosted on Saturday.  Travel award recipients are required to attend both sessions.

CAREER OPTIONS: THE BENCH, THE BOARDROOM OR IN BETWEEN? 

Careers in industry, science journalism, regulatory affairs, and more are presented in the morning’s program.  Each speaker will briefly share his/her story to finding a fulfilling career that may be of interest to you or that you may not have considered before.  Helpful suggestions will be offered for those interested in pursuing a similar career.  An open Q&A session with the panel will follow so you can ask specific questions.  Presenters join attendees for lunch and continued discussion.

NETWORKING LUNCHEON

Invited presenters will join trainees for continued discussion of career interests and issues over lunch.

POSTER SESSION, PART II

All are welcome at the afternoon poster session featuring Graduate and Postdoctoral Travel Awardee presentations. 

CAREER DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS
2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Concurrent afternoon workshops allow you to pick the session that best targets your career stage, goals and interests or feel free to move between workshops to take away helpful information from all three discussions.  These workshops are question and answer discussions between the attendees and panelists.  You will also have an opportunity to submit questions in advance of the meeting.  Workshop descriptions coming soon.
