4-5pm: OPEN TO ALL!  Join an informal “Fireside Chat” on careers in patent law by two former BMCB students. Elysa Goldberg was in Bill Brown’s cell biology lab and Amanda (Dalton) Murphy was in Volker Vogt’s virology lab. Both graduated about 15 years ago and now have highly successful careers in patent law. Elysa works at a leading biotechnology company (she is a Director, Patent Attorney at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc.).  Amanda works at a major patent law firm in Washington, DC (she is a Partner at Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, LLP). The speakers will share how they became interested in intellectual property rights, key decision points to gain entry into this career, steps in the transition from academia, and tips for current grad students and postdocs to consider.
