Have you been curious about the process of transitioning from bench work to the exciting field of technology transfer? Are you interested in negotiating research collaboration agreements and licenses, and protecting cutting edge technologies through patents? If so, then this is the career panel for you! The FelCom Career Development subcommittee has put together a fantastic panel of Ph.D.-level scientists who have made the transition to working in various areas within the field of technology transfer.  The panelists will discuss their areas of expertise, day-to-day routines, how they landed their current positions, the differences between working for universities, non-profit organizations and government agencies, and offer advice for post-docs on preparing for a career in technology transfer. Come and join the discussion with our "Careers in Technology Transfer" panel to see if a job in this field is right for you!
