[PGE PDD Webinar] How to Build an Effective DAC


Tuesday, May 12, 2020, 4:00pm to 6:00pm


Zoom - TBA

Have you recently selected a dissertation advisor and started work toward your thesis? Have you started thinking about which faculty might serve you best on your DAC? In this workshop, early career graduate students will consider the roles that their potential DAC members will play in their personal and professional development and identify personal priority areas to cover when recruiting DAC members. Participants will also be given the opportunity to ask questions about DAC membership of a panel of experienced faculty members, followed by small group discussions with senior graduate students and fellows.

Note: this workshop is targeted to G2s, but we expect that it may be useful for other students interested in adding a DAC member or learning how to better utilize their current DAC.

4:00 pm - 5:00 pm: Open to all 

5:00 pm - 6:00 pm: Open to all students (from any institution) but may be most relevant to students connected to Harvard life science PhD programs

Registration for this event closes 5pm on Monday May 11th.
