An Alternative to a Career in Academics: Life After the Lab

Thursday, February 5, 2009, 5:30-7:30 pm, 5115HP (Herzberg Laboratories) Carleton University.

Presented by: Claire Palmer, PhD.

Claire Palmer received a PhD in Molecular Biology from McMaster University. She drafts and prosecutes patents in a broad range of technologies including biotechnology, biochemistry, pharmaceuticals, microbiology, biology, molecular biology, bioremediation, biological wastewater treatment and other "green" technologies.

Dr. Palmer will talk about the role of scientists and engineers in facilitating obtaining and keeping meaningful patent protection. In particular, Claire will be talking about her role as a Patent Agent in an intellectual property law firm. She will highlight things to consider when choosing a career outside the lab and offer some suggestions to those who may wish to follow a similar career path. Claire will be happy to answer questions about life as a patent agent and discuss the transition from lab work to office work.

Organized by WISE Ottawa. Free admission.
