From Concept to Capability: Alternative Careers in Government Laboratories

Dr. Peter Emanuel (U.S. Army's Edgewood Chemical and Biological Laboratory)

When: Friday, October 2, 2015 - 11:00am - 12:00 pm
Where: 101 Althouse Lab

Wondering about what career you want to pursue after grad school? Learn from Dr. Emanuel, a Penn State BMB Ph.D. alum, and Director of Research at the U.S. Army's premier biodefense facility about what his job entails .  At Edgewood Chemical and Biological Laboratory, 1500 personnel work towards protecting troops and civilians by developing technologies aimed at detecting, neutralizing and decontaminating chemical and biological agents. The diverse and ever changing nature of the research Dr. Emanuel oversees means this seminar may be of interest to students from any lab and research area interested in finding out more about careers in government laboratories and biodefense. 


This event is hosted by the Huck Graduate Student Advisory Committee (HGSAC) and the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) Department.
