Leading Edge Symposium (Virtual)
With the goal of improving gender diversity of life science faculty, the Leading Edge Symposium provides outstanding women and non-binary postdocs in biomedical research a platform to share their work and connect with one another, both professionally and personally. Attendees will give short research talks, participate in lively discussions and network with both junior and senior investigators. A panel of carefully selected world leaders in biomedical research will provide mentorship and career development training, and representatives from institutions interested in recruiting and supporting a diverse faculty will be invited.
We welcome both postdoctoral researchers and institutional representatives to apply.
