Save the Date: April 5 Early Career Investigator Lecture series

We’d like to alert you to the second annual National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) Early Career Investigator Lecture Series coming up on April 5, 2017 ~

The event is intended to introduce undergraduate students to cutting-edge science while inspiring them to pursue biomedical research careers. The event is as much a scientific talk as it is a Q&A, with half of it devoted to answering career-related questions submitted in advance by students. This year, we’ll hear from Namandjé N. Bumpus, Ph.D., associate professor of medicinedivision of clinical pharmacology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and an NIGMS-funded recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers.

On Wednesday, April 5th from 2:00-3:00pm (EASTERN), she’ll talk for 30 minutes about her research on “Drug Metabolism, Pharmacogenetics and the Quest to Personalize HIV Treatment and Prevention,” and then participate in a Q&A. You can watch the event live or view it later online. We are collecting questions from students to info@nigms.nih.gov or #ecilecture on Twitter.

Please share this information with faculty, peers and students who might be interested in this event. It’s a great opportunity for students to hear about new research and career pathways!
