Event description
Dr. Lamar Blackwell will be our guest speaker for the AWIS DC Mentoring Circles program.

About this event

Lamar has been an invited speaker at a number of universities throughout Southern California and in the Philadelphia area, where he shared career advice on communicating the value of their collective academic experience to others. More specifically, he also teaches students how to combine their academic skills and natural gifts to communicate their professional value story to employers. Employers are left with a specific understanding of what their skills are, the context in which it was done and why the employer should care.

Lamar completed his PhD at the University of California Irvine in Biological Sciences. He completed his postdoc work at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, where he studied signal transduction pathways. There, he used organ specific mouse knockout models of angiotensin converting enzyme, to understand aberrant cellular communication associated with blood pressure and inflammation. Following his postdoc at Cedars Sinai Medical center, he started his professional career as a scientist at Janssen R&D where he developed assays to determine the best antibodies to move forward for clinical trials. Lamar moved to the Consumer section and works as Principal Scientist and an R&D global lead in the Baby franchise. Currently he works in R&D on the scientific engagement team to represent the professional voice to J&J Consumer R&D teams and to share R&D insights with health care professionals to improve human health.
