Biocytogen VP visits Cornell

The BEST program and Dr. Avery August invited James Jin, Ph.D., Vice President of Biocytogen LLC to give the seminar: Gene-targeting Platform & its Application in Immuno-Oncology Model Development."

After the seminar, Dr. Jin held a small group discussion with BESTies, grad students and postdocs interested in learning about his career trajectory and the skills needed in small companies. Some of the participants shared what is the most important thing they learned: 

CRISPR-editing in mouse models, PhD researchers in biotech communications, and how to use experimental skills and knowledge outside the lab.

How important a postdoc is for getting a job in industry and what it takes to get a job as a fresh phd grad. I enjoyed meeting people from industry. Looking forward to similar events!
