TUESDAY Sept. 21 12:00PM - 1:00PM EDT: The Value of Intellectual Property to Your R&D Career– Dr. Ken Tobin
Intellectual property (IP) is a work or invention that is the result of creativity and over the course of a career in research and development, you may have several opportunities to develop unique IP. Knowing how to take a novel idea forward, how to protect it, and how to leverage your idea into new opportunities can be key elements of your professional development. ORISE’s Dr. Ken Tobin, holder of 15 U.S. patents and co-founder of Hubble Telemedical Inc., will describe his 32 year relationship with IP and provide insight into the inventive process and lessons learned.
WEDNESDAY Sept. 22 12:00PM - 1:00PM EDT: Peer to Peer Networking – Dr. Rachel Creager
(Open to ORISE participants and alumni only.)
Throughout your STEM career, you are most likely to think about “networking up.” In this presentation, ORISE’s Dr. Rachel Creager will make the case for establishing a robust peer (those close to you in career level) network throughout your career. She will discuss steps you should take to form those connections and the importance of having a network that will meet your changing needs and interests throughout your professional and personal life. After the presentation, join other members of the ORISE postdoctoral community to build your network and connect with peer-to-peer chats!
