A course offered by The American Society for Cell Biology and KGI intended for postdocs, junior scientists, and graduate students.
KGI’s in-person biotech course in collaboration with ASCB has been changed to a virtual format. Please visit ASCB’s website for further details.
Developed in partnership with the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB), the course will introduce PhD scientists, postdocs, and graduate students to the competencies they need to thrive in industry and will expose them to the culture and infrastructure of life sciences companies through MBA-style case-based teaching, professional development workshops, and a team-based project. Learn about the process through which academic science is commercialized, gain invaluable insight into the way industry views scientific research, learn about careers for scientists in industry, and how to best leverage your skill set!
Students will be introduced to industry dynamics within the bioscience industry. Classes will include discussion-oriented lectures and highly interactive MBA-style case studies exploring dilemmas faced by bioscience companies. Participants will break into smaller groups to focus on short problem-solving exercises and work on a team project. Professional development will be an integral part of the course, with panels of industry guests and speakers sharing in-depth information about industry R&D, career paths, and effective networking strategies.
