The Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation in conjunction with the NIH Oxford-Cambridge Scholars Program and the International Biomedical Research Alliance have recently developed a new speaker series entitled "Lasker Lessons in Leadership". The series will include three events per year focusing on different aspects of career development and leadership opportunities from the perspective of both senior and junior level scientists and biomedical leaders.

The theme for the upcoming event on August 4th will be "The Art of Publishing" and Dr. Dan Littman from the New York University Langone Medical Center will be the opening speaker, presenting the key elements of successful leadership that have guided his career and the publishing choices he has made along the way. Following his presentation, there will be an informal mentoring panel discussion. Panel guests include Dr. Beverly Purnell, Senior Editor, SCIENCE, Dr. Alan Sher, Senior Editor for The Journal of Experimental Medicine and member of the Nature Reviews in Immunology editorial board, and Dr. Enrique Schisterman, Founding Editorial Board for the American Journal of Clinical and Experimental Obstetrics and Gynecology, Section Editor for Current Epidemiology Reports: Reproductive and Perinatal Epidemiology, Senior Editorial Board Member for the International Journal of Molecular Epidemiology and Genetics, Associate Editor for the American Journal of Epidemiology. Panel guests will build on Dr. Littman's presentation by sharing their experiences and offering guidance on the different aspects of publishing: from authoring primary papers, book chapters, and reviews to advice on selecting journals for publications.
