ELRIG and the BPS Panel Discussion: Early Career Pharmacologists – Transitioning to Careers in Industry
Pharmacology is the foundational discipline of drug discovery and a highly regarded competence within the pharma/biotech industry. In this informal, interactive discussion a panel of pharmacologists will share perspectives on their transition and career journeys into different industrial roles. Attendees will gain deeper insight into the breadth of careers and professional development opportunities that industry affords, and the skillsets required to transition from higher education/academia. There will be an open, moderated Q&A for attendees to pose their own Qs to the panelists.
Who should attend? Undergraduate, Postgraduate, PostDoctoral and other early career pharmacologists looking to learn more about careers in industrial pharmacology, and how to prepare for the transition from academia
