In early September the NIH Biotechnology Training Program held its first Alumni Symposium to celebrate the past, present, and future of the program. The NIH - BTP is among the largest of its kind nationally and has trained more than 140 PhD students over its 25 year history at the U of M. September’s symposium included seminar presentations from 8 alumni of the program, a ‘Careers in Biotechnology’ Q & A panel with an additional 6 alumni, and a poster session that showcased the research of current traineves. The symposium was a great success for the 100+ in attendance, with engaging science and career talks, plenty of opportunities for networking, and optimism for the future of the program. A big thanks to all who made it possible!
