Growing Up In Science @ Stanford

October 20, 2023 | 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Growing Up in Science (GUIS) is back for the 2023-2024 academic year!

In most sessions, one faculty member shares the personal side of their individual journey through academia. Occasionally, PhD-holding speakers from outside the academic research environment may also present. The stories focus on the struggles, doubts, weaknesses, and failures we all face as young scientists. GUIS aims to normalize discussing these personal and interpersonal challenges, and supporting one another through them. There will be no (or minimal) discussion of the speaker's research.

Unless otherwise noted, all events are held from 3-4pm in the James Lin and Nisa Leung Seminar Room (E153) of the Neuro/ChEM-H building. GUIS seminars are intended for current academic trainees, including undergraduates, post-bac technicians, graduate students, post-docs, lab managers, and other in-training research support staff.
