While most people know that the Texas city is home to the Alamo, they may not know that it is also recognized as a national center for bioscience research and innovation.
The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at UT Health Science Center is proud to work with the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the University of Texas San Antonio for the "
Science Communication & Outreach Career Symposium."
With a vibrant military, academic, nonprofit, and private sector focused on research, the economic impact of San Antonio's health care/ bioscience industry has become a leading sector with over $30.6 billion annually. According to the
San Antonio Business Journal, one in six of San Antonio workers are employed in health care or bioscience fields.
To help prepare the future biomedical leaders, the symposium will be focused on how effective science communication is useful for a variety of scientific careers. It is a must-attend event for undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral trainees in the biomedical field.
It will feature notable speakers such as Jamie Vernon, Ph.D., director of Science Communications and Publication for
Sigma Xi & Sharon Milgram, Ph.D., director of the Office of Intramural Training and Education for the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
There will also be a poster session with cash prizes for the "Best Science Communicator" along with
multiple career panels and a career expo featuring many local biomedical companies.
Join us in San Antonio for the symposium. See the
agenda for the full schedule. Register here.
Day 1 (Friday, September 18): Training and professional development for outreach and public engagement practitioners
Day 2 (Saturday, September 19): Keynote addresses, interactive career panels and poster sessions focused on the theme of science communication
