Gain an Understanding of Working with Industry
After the eight lightning talks, a 1-hour panel discussion will begin on working with – and for – industry. Confirmed roundtable speakers from Hormel Foods Corporation, Merck Animal Health, and NEOGEN will cover topics on:
- Industry perception of research priorities (Michelle Kromm)
- A primer on intellectual property (Patrick Klepcyk)
- Comparing academic and industry research labs (Rick Sibbel)
- Skills and competencies needed for new industry hires (Jeffery Knittel)
J R Tait, Director of Genetics Product Development at NEOGEN Corporation, will moderate this discussion.
Reminder to Submit an Abstract: Submit an abstract to the Quarterly Research Symposia Series. Abstracts are accepted on a rolling basis and the next symposium is scheduled for January. Learn more about this new presenting opportunity.
