  1. Innovation Info Conferences proudly announces the International Conference on Pharmaceutical Sciences and Drug Development (IPSDD 2018) to be held during November 05-06, 2018 in Prague, Czech Republic. The IPSDD 2018 Conference is organized by the Innovation Info Conferences (IIC). The theme of the conference is "Embracing Innovative Technologies in Drug Development, Manufacturing and Discovery", will underpin the need for collaboration and cooperation of individuals from a wide range of professional, academic and technological backgrounds. IPSDD 2018 aims to bring together a wide range of active expertise, covering all stages of developments from lab to consumer: scientists, researchers (senior and young), academicians, clinical pharmacists, companies, investors and regulatory authorities. Moreover, the meeting is designed to serve as an effective international platform for all participants for networking as well as to contribute to the discussions on innovative technologies employed in modern drug discovery and delivery to promote development of efficacious novel drugs.

  2. Hi everyone! I am so excited to start grad school next fall but am faced with a really tough decision!! I am really interested in cancer biology, and would study a wide range of topics within the field. I am deciding between gerstner Sloan Kettering and MIT! Both schools have lots of faculty I am interested in so its difficult to decide, and as you can see I can't seem to think of many cons to either- so I could really use some advice! Here are some pros and cons I came up with: GSK: More translational research, biomedical focus, Manhattan, awesome housing, clinical program, also has cancer immunology MIT: Its MIT, in the center of biotech, broader training, Boston, collaborative across many disciplines, I am interested potentially in doing a some what computationally related project and they have many cancer biologists who do this, an especially intense/intellectually stimulating environment Cons GSK: very cancer bio focused, newer program MIT: Lack of cancer immunology, kind of want to leave boston Thanks so much in advance!
  3. I am an international applicant. As I have applied for fall, 2017 for MD Anderson, I still haven't heard from them. Does anybody here applied to MD Anderson knows when we should expect an answer?? Thanks.
  4. I'm applying to Johns Hopkins, Northwestern University, Mt Sinai, Baylor College of Medicine and UC Davis. I currently have a horrible GRE score. I did not have a chance to study for it (collectively a week), but I had to apply this cycle given the fact that I'm in a research program that requires that I apply. I wanted to apply for MSTP programs next year, but my program advisor told me that I had to apply this year in order to receive funding until July of next year, so I took the GRE just in time for them to be received at the schools I'm applying to: V 150 Q 144 A 3.0 Do I have a chance? Any advice or support is appreciated.

  5. Hey all, I'm trying to decide between enrolling in Tulane's Biomedical Sciences program and UMD - Baltimore's Molecular Medicine program for Fall 2016. I would like to focus on cancer genetics, but realize that people do switch their focus once beginning these programs. I liked the professors more at Tulane and was more interested in their research, but UMD is ranked higher. Do school rankings matter much in research? If anyone has any insight into either of these two programs, any advice would be welcome. Thanks
  6. Has anyone else struggled with medical issues in grad school? I was diagnosed with a "benign" tumor right and had to have radiation treatment. I'm super lucky that my amazing grad student insurance covered all of the bills and I got to go to the University's amazing medical school hospital for treatment. That said, I'm still struggling with some issues related to the tumor and am wondering how others deal with medical situations in grad school. Are there even others out there like me? Where do you get support from? Do you feel like you face a stigma from your department? How has your advisor reacted? ETA: If you don't want to come out with it on the board, maybe you would be willing to PM me? I know that some people are private about medical stuff and don't want to talk about it.
  7. Hi everyone! I am an international student and intend to pursue PhD in genetics (preferably cancer genetics). Can anyone suggest good schools in this field. My GRE score: verbal: 640, Quant: 690, AW: 4.0. My TOEFL ibt score is 116/120. I hold an MSc degree in Genetics which is equivalent to a BS degree in the US. I had graduated top of my class. Have teaching experience of 6+ years. Finished a one yr. research project, working on another one right now but the topic is different from my intended PhD research topic. No publications yet Applied for Fulbright, made it to the interview but will hear final word by October. Could somebody suggest good schools or programs matching my profile that I could apply to, preferably in NY, Michigan, Pennsylvania or Ohio.
