Lectures and seminars Career path discussions with Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz
Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute will give an account of her career path and discuss with students and postdocs at 09.30 in the SciLifeLab Air&Fire auditorium. Since the number of places is limited, please register to participate in this session.
Using cutting-edge, superresolution imaging technology to visualize cellular activity at the nano-scale, Lippincott-Schwartz lab has redefined how we look at protein dynamics in the cell. When describing her mentorship philosophy, Jennifer comments that she encourages her group members to develop their own projects. It is only when a colleague feels that he or she “owns” the project that real dedication, determination, and creativity emerge. In developing projects, she considers it is important to build on the strengths and interests of students and postdocs, rather than focusing exclusively on a group leader’s specific interests at the time.
The annual lecture series is set up in the recognition of the development of electron microscopy and will be delivered by eminent scientists in the field of structural biology and molecular visualisation. The event is open to anyone.
