Seth Mnookin

Associate Director
MIT’s Graduate Program in Science Writing
Author of "The Panic Virus"

Noted science journalist and associate director of MIT's Graduate Program in Science Writing Seth Mnookin will talk about his experiences on a number of complex topics, ranging from controversies about vaccine safety to the use of exome sequencing for rare disease diagnosis.

Janssen Labs

Site Visit

Hi Postdocs!

We have another site visit planned for all of you. We will be visiting Janssen Labs.

Located on the Torrey Pines mesa at Janssen Research & Development’s La Jolla-based West Coast Research Center, JLABS provides access to modern equipment, facilities and operations management - thereby enabling new companies to focus on their research. Companies are able to save capital funds and eliminate facility construction and set-up costs, therefore, reducing the time to get operational while gaining access to the benefits of a class A corporate R&D facility.
