Mentorship Component: Career Panel
The purpose of this mentorship session is to have an open discussion with three craniofacial investigators who have recently established their own laboratory and have successfully transitioned to independent research. As junior faculty, our panel members will discuss their academic experience and advise audience members on aspects of career progression such as the current funding climate, publishing and mentorship.
