2017 Bay Area Postdoc Symposium


We are excited to announce the 2017 Bay Area Postdoc Symposium that will take place on June 10th at the Buck Institute.

This year, UCSF’s Postdoc Association is joining other Bay Area Postdocs (UC Berkeley, Buck Institute, Gladstone, Stanford) to organize a one-day symposium. It will be a great chance to learn about the research of many of your colleagues across the Bay Area, exchange new ideas and socialize. 

Science communication will be the main focus this year. We are putting together a programme that will emphasize the value of being able to engage large audiences and strike the right balance of storytelling and scientific rigor. These skills are both crucial to long-term career success, as well as timely given the current climate of misinformation and threats to science funding.

We will be posting more details on the programme and abstract submission soon, but in the meantime SAVE the DATE!

We hope to see many of you on June 10th! 

Best wishes,


Andrea Serra-Marques and Elena Minones-Moyano
