Description

BioTech; the best career move a woman could make?

If your plans for 2019 include thinking about your career, CamWIT's first social event of the year could be eye opening.

Because BioTech is not just about life sciences skills; it also presents some of the biggest engineering and IT challenges available in STEM. The Sanger Institute runs a data centre holding 42 Petabytes of data which processes more than 3 million jobs per week for the scientists on site. If you’ve ever wanted to know how this data is used – and why the Centre could use your skills – this event is for you.

For CambridgeWIT the BioData Innovation Centre will be opening up their site and hosting an event which brings together 3 amazing speakers followed by refreshments and networking. This event will be an intro to Bio-tech with a focus on women working in this field – and why we should join them.

Speakers

Our speakers for the evening will be three brilliant women with diverse backgrounds in biotech:

Laura Zupko, IT Business Consultant GSK
Greet De Baets, Bioinformatics Developer, Eagle Genomics
Sarah Hunter, Senior Bioinformatics Project Manager, Illumina

Bus shuttle to and from Campus

To help with transport, you can pre-book a seat on a special shuttle bus that Sci-bite are putting on to make getting to and from the Campus easier. The coach service we use is Richmond’s; and the coach will pick you up at the top of Hills Road (opposite the Flying Pig pub) and deliver you there at the end of the event.

PICK UP TIME IN CAMBRIDGE: 18:00

Post-event
PICK UP TIME ON CAMPUS: 21:00

A seat on the bus can be booked with registration, so have an extra glass of wine and leave the car at home ;-).

Looking forward to seeing you!

The CamWIT Team.
