Career and Professional Development
Many students see an interdisciplinary life sciences PhD – of the kind enabled by this T32 – as the starting off point for the private sector (predominantly biotechnology, data sciences, or bioengineering), or even ‘alternative’ careers in communicating science, teaching at college levels, or serving in government whether as a scientist or advising science-informed policy decisions. The InQuBATE T32 career development initiatives will inculcate this ‘dual use’ approach. We anticipate programming in career development, journal clubs, industry partnerships, bioscience communication. More information will be available as we launch program initiatives available both to InQuBATE supported trainees and the broader community.
