Rapid-fire presentations (second round)
Scientific conferences are unique in that they are events in which the audience can also act as speakers. Poster presentations are a common communication platform for student researchers participating in international conferences, while more prestigious oral presentations are usually reserved for the veterans of the field. The rapid-fire presentations are 10-minute presentations in which outstanding young pharmaceutical researchers can present their work. These sessions will be followed by 5-minute Q&As.
Tips and tricks for career building and advancement: a panel discussion
For most of us, the final major hurdle we are faced with during our schooling is finding and keeping a job. No matter where we are in the world, this challenge is further exacerbated by the current economic climate. Thus, we wanted to group together speakers from academia and the private sector to discuss about this topic. Our panelists will share the challenges they had faced when finding their first job, how the pandemic impacted their work and employment prospects. They will discuss how they got ahead after finding (or creating) their current position. Finally, they will talk about how they maintained a proper mental hygiene and the challenges in doing so.
