Networking has gotten a really bad name these days. I take your card, you take my card and then we don’t call each other. The Office of the Vice President for Research is sponsoring a workshop designed to reintroduce you to how strong professional relationships can be necessary for most people to succeed in their careers. On Monday June 10 from 3-4:30pm at the Singleton Auditorium, Building 46-3002, Dr. Joanne Kamens speaks  about building relationships for success. Registration to attend is required. The workshop will provide practical tools for meeting people and for nurturing new and established connections.

Dr. Joanne Kamens received her PhD in Genetics from Harvard Medical School then spent 15 years at BASF/Abbott where she led discovery research projects on small molecule and antibody approaches to inflammatory diseases, ultimately serving as Group Leader in Molecular Biology. In 2007 she joined RXi Pharmaceuticals as Director of Discovery and concluded there as Senior Director of Research Collaborations. In 2011, Dr. Kamens became the Executive Director of Addgene, a mission driven, non-profit dedicated to helping scientists around the world collaborate. Dr. Kamens founded the current Boston chapter of AWIS. She was the Director of the HBA Boston Mentoring Program for 3 years and serves on a number of other boards. In 2013 she was elected as a fellow to the Massachusetts Academy of Science for service to science and the community. Photo  by StockMonkeys.
