Career Series Fall 2020 – Graduate School Workshops

Location: Via Zoom

Haley Barlow, Jane Warshaw (ND Biology Alumni) and Dr. Stu Ravnik on Graduate School at UTSW

My name is Jane Warshaw, and I am a 1st year graduate student at UT Southwestern Medical Center. I am a member of the class of 2020, and while I was at ND, I lived in PDub and was involved in Uplift and Panopoulos Lab. I also studied abroad in Puebla, Mexico during the Fall of my junior year. I am just beginning with lab rotations and my core classes at UTSW with an ultimate goal of joining a lab that studies developmental biology and cell fate decisions. I decided to come to UTSW because the faculty are dedicated to mentoring and teaching students so they can grow into independent and innovative scientists. I also participated in the SURF program at UTSW, and my positive experience in the program swayed my decision to return for graduate school. I am still undecided as to my career goals, but right now I am leaning towards an industry/biotech position where I can still get my hands wet in lab and mentor young scientists. I am looking forward to seeing you all and answering your questions about science beyond ND J.
