The GGNB Graduate Student Advisory Committee (GradSAC) is introducing a new program called “GGNB ADME” (Assorted Development, Mentorship, and Exploration). GGNB ADME is a professional development series that provides resources for new and continuing GGNB students.
There are three major threads to this series:
- Development - This series is designed for students at all stages of the GGNB program. Topics may include resources for exploring career paths, resume and CV development, alumni networking, and science writing.
- (First-Year) Mentorship - This series covers the nuts and bolts of GGNB. Whether a new student or ongoing, this is a great opportunity to exchange sage advice. Topics will include funding, TA-ships, PI expectations, and more.
- Exploration (via Journal Club) - This series provides a collegial space to discuss hot topics in nutrition. Suggested reading(s) will be provided ~1 week ahead of time. Even if you don't have time to read, students are encouraged to come contribute to the conversation.
As an example, at a recent ADME event GGNB alumnus Dr. Alison Borkowska met with current GGNB students to discuss her career path in both academic and non-academic positions.
Meetings for fall quarter are weekly on Fridays, 10-11am. A list of all dates, topics, and locations can be found on our GoogleSheet (contact GradSAC Mentor Program Coordinator Shannon McClorry (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request access).
