Stanford Research Career Stories

Join us for monthly sessions featuring long-standing Stanford staff in clinical and translational research!

Research career paths are not all well-defined beyond the established job families listed by HR. This monthly mini-series features personal stories told by senior Stanford staff in clinical and translational research on how they navigated their personal and professional career, explored different career paths in research, and identified leadership opportunities

The sessions are 75 minutes, including Q&A and interaction with audience.
