This Friday, August 11th marks our 5th Annual Fisk-Vanderbilt Master’s to PhD Bridge Research Day. This year will feature many more alumni, including an alumni career panel before the event begins. Our keynote speaker is alumna Melissa Harrison Fortuna, PhD who will be telling us about her academic path and her current work at Intel as a Managing Engineer.
Note that it is a research celebration- because the focus is on student research and accomplishments. This is a time to reflect on how far we have come as scientists and note our contributions to our field. Even more so, it is a chance to celebrate our community and come together to get to know our new students and rekindle the ties that help drive our success. Together, We are the Bridge.
