We will have five panelists from different sectors in science discussing their careers, and the paths they took to get there.

You will have an opportunity to network with your fellow scientists during an informal get-together over refreshments from 6:00-6:30pm, and then hear the stories of our panelists starting at 6:30pm.

We will have a strong focus on questions coming from the audience, and hope that there will be a lively discussion involving the panelists and attendees.

There will be something here for everyone, from undergraduate to postdoctoral level.
