Careers in Biotech/Pharma Panel Event


The Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology Program, The Office of Postdoctoral Studies, and The Graduate School Office of Professional Development sponsored an event in April 2017 that allowed current students and postdocs to learn more about careers in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. Over 100 participants came to hear a career panel comprised of current employees (including 2 MCP alumni) from local and multinational companies, including Takeda Pharmaceuticals U.S.A, Inc. (TPUSA), Invenra Inc., and Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals. The panel discussion was followed by a reception and a Q&A session. The event was a great success!

Career Panelists:
Dr. Bryan Glaser (Invenra, Inc.)
Dr. Michael Lawler (Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals)
Dr. Stacey Melquist (Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals)
Dr. Matthew Wagoner (Takeda Pharmaceuticals)
