BME Career Pathway Seminar Series - Fall 2022

Each semester, Professor Jurney and Professor Leineweber host three speakers from the Biotech/Bioengineering ecosystem via the BME Career Pathway Series. The "Pathways in BME" series takes place the penultimate Friday of each month during the Spring and Fall semesters and showcases career opportunities that BME students should consider in the interdisciplinary field of biomedical engineering and biotechnology.

Each seminar is unique and speakers can be expected to discuss their personal career pathway, current role and experience in the field as well as lessons learned along the way. Students will also have the opportunity to interact with the speakers and ask any questions.
