The networking panel is designed to help students understand what they can do with a degree in the biological sciences and similar majors. A panel of representatives from industry and federal laboratories will explain what their job entails and answer questions about the kinds of undergraduate and graduate experiences that might prepare students for pursuing careers within their organizations. They will also answer questions from the audience and speak individually with those who seek more detailed information.
