On the 10th of May, 2016, we held our first ever PDA/GSC facilitated vendor show in Sackler 114!
We had over 100 grad students, postdocs, technicians, PIs and MDs come grab lunch, chat to 9 different vendors and help support the efforts of the PDA and GSC. The gracious contributions from the vendors helped to over double the PDA budget for the next year – allowing us to put on even bigger and better events for the Tufts Community!
Today we are joined by Sarah Dykstra, PhD, who worked in the early drug discovery group at Amgen. Many of our postdocs and PhD students will end up in R&D, so its a great opportunity to learn about your potential future career.
