The mission of the Industry Speaker Series is to help students explore career options in the life sciences industry by leveraging the expertise of our corporate partners. We invite accomplished professionals from KGI’s expansive network to share their story and engage directly with KGI students, who appreciate the unique perspectives speakers bring.
