Networking Reception 2018
On behalf of LSCDS, we welcome all graduate students to our 14th annual networking reception. Throughout the last decade, a growing number of graduate students have taken various roles beyond academia and have become an integral component of the 21st century. To bridge the gap between graduate students and the professional community in Toronto, the reception aims to provide an avenue, unlike any other, for students to develop valuable network with leading life-science professionals.
To help you prepare, consider attending our upcoming Networking101 seminar.
