    Meet the six members of the 2014-2015 Alumni Network Executive Committee (ANEC). These individuals are dedicated to helping strengthen the connection of program alumni to the Center for Biotechnology's Fundamentals of the Bioscience Industry Program. Eleanor Allen, PhD Richard Dell Bovi Rochelle Nelson Caleen Ramsook, PhD Weixuan Yu Hui Wang Below is  each new member's statement of interest. In their own words, they express their vision for the alumni network during their tenure. Eleanor Allen, PhD I first learned about the Fundamentals of Bioscience Industry program from a recent graduate of the course, Dr. Li Liu. In 2012, I had just joined my first academic postdoctoral position at Stony Brook with the clear intention of continuing on the academic or industry R&D route. After speaking with Dr. Liu, I became aware that I was completely uneducated in other opportunities for science PhD graduates without further higher education, such as law or business school. Upon attending the informational session for the FOBI course, I was surprised that none of the other 3 universities in New York City, where I had previously worked, offered such a course. The concep

    Meet the 2013/2014 Alumni Network Executive Committee (ANEC)

    August 26th, 2013
    We are pleased to announce new members of the 2013/2014 Alumni Network Executive Committee (ANEC): Valery Matthys, PhD Class of 2013 I am a recent graduate from the FOBIP course. I enrolled in the course shortly after starting my second post‐doc because I realized that my knowledge of “what  can you be with a PhD?”  was  too limited. The Fobip course was a great experience and exceeded  my expectations. The  course changed my view on my potential as a scientist and I  am convinced it gives me a step  ahead compared to other job  seekers. My goal is promote the Fobip course, especially at Stony Brook‘s postdoc association and focus on career development and networking events for scientists who want to leave academia and enter the commercial world. Many PhD students and probably even more post‐docs are unaware of the many opportunities that are available to them. Being part of the Fobip alumni is great way to start for students and post‐docs for networking, creating industry connections and career opportunities.   Qin Yao, PhD, Class of 2013 Networking, improvement, opportunity and leadership are values I hold dearly and will seek to imple
