Pre-Professional Panel
Panel Discussion with American Physiology Society Professionals
Student Center, Room 206

The developmental, physiological and neurological fields of biology are making ground-breaking discoveries at a rapid pace. Because these fields are interdisciplinary in nature, students from a variety of backgrounds can contribute to these fields—ethicists, computer scientists, mathematicians and historians—to name just a few. In this session, Dr. Ken Campbell (moderator),  Dr. Hollie Swanson, Dr. Moriel Vandsburger , and Dr. Yvonne Fondyfe-Mittendorf,  will share their educational pathways and recommendations for undergraduate students thinking of pursuing a career in this area.
