Event description

Description

The Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics (ITMAT) and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute are pleased to co-host a one-day symposium for junior investigators (senior physician-fellows, post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty conducting research) focused on successful strategies for a career in clinical and translational science. Attendees will gain valuable career insights through presentations, panel discussions, and time for networking.

The symposium will be held on March 21, 2017 in the Smilow Center for Translational Research, Rubenstein Auditorium/Smilow Commons. More information can be found at our website: http://www.itmat.upenn.edu/juniorinvestigatorsymposium.html.

We are excited to offer a speed mentoring session from 2:20-3:45pm. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet one-on-one with Penn & CHOP faculty to ask questions and receive career advice and guidance. This session is offered on a first-come first-serve basis, so attendees should indicate their interest in the session on the registration form.
