Mentorship Component: Early Career Professionals Panel
The mentorship component aims to wrap up the Gordon Research Seminars with an informal and inspiring discussion with a panel of recently established scientists and also working within research publicity across the globe. Members of the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions to successful young investigators in the field, as well as learn about career pathways. Not only this will bring a relaxed atmosphere to openly deliberate about career pathways, but it will also prepare the audience to make the most of the exciting upcoming Gordon Research Conference.
