In collaboration with Sinai’s Post Doc Executive Committee, we plan regular tours to local large, small, and start up biotech companies.  They are a great way to meet professionals, discover new careers in industry, find out how to get industry jobs, and connect with colleagues with similar interests.  Make sure you know about the next one in the next 2-3 months by signing up on our mailing list!

Hackathon Series 2016

In collaboration with Sinai Biotech, the Mount Sinai Institute of Technology (MSIT) is planning its next set of workshops! This next series will focus on the basics of prototyping, and having participants build their own device that they can use in the lab. Even if you have no prototyping or programming experience, you can learn to do it and apply those skills at the Hackathon or the Pre-Hackathon Workshop Series. Contact to get the latest information on Hackathon, the workshops, and Sinai’s Rapid Prototyping Center.
