The Centre for Blood Research (CBR) was pleased to hold a Career “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) Café on Thursday July 21, 2022 from 12-1 pm PT, with Dr. Stefanie Vogt, PhD, a Senior Research Scientist in Discovery at AbCellera.

She shared some insightful takeaways with our audience:

  • If you love doing cutting-edge research and working with a supportive team, a career in industry may be a great fit for you!
  • Don’t feel constrained by the subject matter of your degree. As long as you have the appropriate core skills and can show that you are a quick learner, many employers are willing to provide on-the-job technical training.
  • Connections that you’ve made through your graduate studies, are great resources when you’re thinking about your next career steps.
