Recap: Science Policy Careers Panel

On May 11, 2018, CaSP hosted a Science Policy Careers Panel in collaboration with the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery. The event featured four distinguished guests (for more information on our panelist, please see our previous blog post). The first half of the event was a forum lead by our Co-President Caitlin Warlick-Short, and the second half of the event was a breakout session. During the breakout session,  participants discussed hypothetical advocacy strategies to prevent environmental restriction rollbacks on protected wetlands in Wisconsin.

CaSP would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank our panelists for sharing their experiences and encouraging statements. We also thank the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery for partnering with us and providing financial support for this event. Furthermore, we also thank the Computation and Informatics in Biology and Medicine Training Program, the Neuroscience Training Program, the Biotechnology Training Program, and the Department of Biochemistry for financial support.
