Industry basic research is often thought of as upstream innovation and the final product is a drug, device, or some other novel technological advancement. This panel of experts from different companies and backgrounds will discuss careers in product development, what steps led each of the panelists to their current role, and their current job responsibilities.  

Whether you are interested in continuing to do bench side research, or perhaps, stay in a research setting but step away from the bench, join our discussion with the panelists to learn more about the different opportunities for PhD scientists in industry at various points in the product development pipeline.
