Where Can My Degree Take Me: Research Edition

Are you considering doing a research project, heading on to grad school, or even pursuing a career in research? Missed out on our annual student prof luncheon? We got you covered!

We have several professors (who are leading researchers in the field of nutrition) lined up for you! This event will be taking place on Thursday March 12th from 2:30 to 4 pm. This is your chance to chat with them in a casual setting and find out a bit more about what each of their labs do. You might even learn about what they look for in a research student! 

Check out our Facebook page for a list of professors who will be attending. 

P.S. It’s not a dessert mixer without desserts, so there definitely will be refreshments!
