Behind the CV: Stories from Faculty

A “Growing Up in Science” event

“Behind the CV” is a conversation-style event series about becoming and being a scientist. UPenn faculty members share their stories, giving us a peek into the unspoken challenges you don’t get to read on a CV.

Thursday, November 21st, 4-5pm

Come join us as we chat with one of the founders of the “Growing Up in Science” model:
