This seminar will not feature any Western blots, ELISAs, immuno-fluorescent microscopy or immuno-assays. Instead, this seminar will be about:

  1. The skills and experiences gained through research and academia and their value when transferred to other sectors, and
  2. The lessons learned from other sectors and how these are relevant to research and academia
