will talk about their experiences and offer practical advice for identifying
career paths and pursuing opportunities. The focus will be on opportunities,
career paths, and career transitions for women interested in biotechnology

unique experiences in bioscience, the information presented will be of value to
anyone interested in a career in biotechnology.
