Mentorship Program



    We recognize the role great mentorship can play in success. Women often do not have female role models to look up to and emulate, yet studies have shown that women mentoring women can make a significant difference in the success and job satisfaction of both. Do you desire to mentor other women in your field or to be mentored?

    1. Briefly describe the type of institution in which you are employed or are familiar with (academic, pharma, biotech, reference lab etc) and the nature of your job.

    I work at a small biotech company hence I wear many “hats” at my current position. As a Tech rep., I work with our current/potential customers to guide them through the process of best microparticle or nanoparticles products. If trouble finds its way in experiments, I aid in troubleshooting protocol by conducting similar tests internally. In addition, I help set specifications for custom products as well as evaluating the new products.
