About the series
To what extent can we plan and design our careers? How much depends on our environment, the choices we make, the opportunities that present themselves, the networks we build, and the achievements and failures we experience along the way? The Career Speaker Series will feature speakers who earned a graduate degree and have built interesting careers in regenerative medicine. They will speak about the challenges and opportunities of navigating a career in this emerging industry without a road map. These webinars are for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and research associates in regenerative medicine-related fields.
