ASCB is offering two week-long courses this summer for PhD students, graduate students, and postdocs in health, science, and medical programs who wish to explore opportunities to implement their expertise in a biomedical business career. Of 230 attendees in 2014-2018, 66% now have jobs in industry, regulatory affairs, or tech transfer; the remainder are still in training or in academia. The course fee is $875 and scholarships from $200-$400 are available, thanks to support from Biogen. The East Coast course, in partnership with Manning School of Business at University of Massachusetts Lowell, is May 31-June 6. The West Coast course, in partnership with Keck Graduate Institute in Claremont, CA, is July 12-18. Each course can accommodate up to 50 graduate students and postdocs (international and domestic).
