Science Shaping Our World-SHOW is an ongoing seminar and networking series that highlights cutting edge translational life science research and development. Our mission is to bring together a multidisciplinary audience spanning academia and industry providing exposure and insight into the life science advancements changing our world.

March 2016 will kick off a series of SHOW events focused on the science and the art of building dynamic network relationships. Although research plays a key role in driving innovation, relationships also play an important part in creating the necessary opportunities to bring about extraordinary and dynamic change in science and medicine.

Strong professional networks can be advantageous in all areas such as nucleating novel research collaborations, business development opportunities, new venture creation, professional development and/or career advancement. Networks within your area of expertise or business are powerful but even more powerful are networks that break down verticals and bridge silos, such as academia vs industry. As hybrid skills and diverse relationships grow in demand, how can we gain this expertise and build these relationships –> by networking with diverse people outside of your field…. which is easier said than done!

Leading March’s SHOW event will be career strategist extraordinaire, Sarah Cardozo Duncan. Sarah is an accomplished networker who will be sharing her knowledge and insight on relationship building and strategy. Following the introduction, the remainder of the evening will be an opportunity to put Sarah’s strategies into action, meet new colleagues from outside of your field/outside of your industry, and enrich your network of relationships.

Also, joining us for this event will be an awesome group of special guest "networkers" that will be stationed strategically around the venue space so as to allow for effective access by all attendees and maximum networking diversification!Special guests networking representatives include:

  • Vijayalakshmi Agnani, M.S., MBA, Head of Office, External Innovation Operations, Strategy, Science Policy and External Innovation at Sanofi
  • Howie Chun-Hau Chen, Ph.D., Instructor Level Researcher Focused on Age-related Disease Research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
  • Amanda A Fitzgerald, Ph.D., Scientific Account Manager at Genedata

For this SHOW event, we are introducing a novel networking tool called Podia. This new connectivity tool emerged from the observation that many (maybe most!) questions are context-specific, better answered by the people around us, than by the world at large. Podia is an experiment in context-specific knowledge sharing designed to better answer questions across a broad spectrum. So let's get started!

Podia Instructions for SHOW Guest: What questions do you hope to have answered by the SHOW community on March 24th? Ask your questions on Podia, up vote questions that interest you, and respond to questions when you have insight to offer! To start:

1) Download Podia in the iOS app store or go to
2) The following community name functions as an access code for the event: SHOW  
3) Make sure to type this community name in the community field upon logging in.
4) If you don't see any content, you have entered the wrong community name.
5) Your cell number functions as a password: if you have bad cell service, make sure WiFi is enabled on your phone, so you can receive an authentication code.
3) A couple key terms:
     a) Mics are topic tags for your questions. When you share a question, you must select at least one mic.
     b) Upvote: Tap or click the 'Upvote' button to express interest in that question.
     c) Upvote responses to agree with responses.
     d) Upvotes are entirely anonymous.
4) Tap or click the text of any question to view or submit responses.

That’s it! Happy question-sharing!
