Janssen Labs

Site Visit

Hi Postdocs!

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

The day will start with an overview of Janssen Labs, followed by Janssen R&D career presentations. After that there will be various Lab tours and the opportunity to interact with Janssen R&D Human Resources. There will be ample opportunities for networking and lunch is provided. More program information will be posted as soon as it becomes available.

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.

One World - One Health

Paul McKellips

Founder
OneHealthResearch

ONE HEALTH RESEARCH is a fast-paced, inspiring, and motivational 60-minute multimedia presentation delivered with humor, power and high-energy passion for all audiences working in biomedical research. Some may remember Paul’s marquee presentations of RISE UP and THE MIRACLE when he was the EVP at FBR. Now, as the founder of ONE HEALTH RESEARCH, Paul takes grassroots advocacy and outreach to a new level. This multimedia presentation will empower you to speak up about research while leaving you proud of careers well-chosen and jobs well-done.

ONE HEALTH RESEARCH celebrates the interconnectivity of all scientific discoveries. Anything uncovered has a potential impact on everything discovered. From human and animal health, to endangered species and vulnerable habitats; from nutraceuticals and increased food production, to environmental stewardship and clean drinking water; the bio-destiny of the planet depends on ONE HEALTH RESEARCH. Biomedical research in the 21st century is our modern-day “moon shot.” As we explore pathways for cures and breakthroughs in human health, the gift of scientific serendipity means we may uncover keys to improve all facets of biology throughout the earth.

Paul McKellips is a veteran of the TV and motion picture industry writing, directing and producing three movies. He was also the director of the Jonathan Winters Entertainment Show and the Pat Morita Show. After the terrorist attacks of 9/11, McKellips moved to Washington, DC where he covered the Pentagon and State Department as a national TV news correspondent. Soon after he was assigned the Middle East desk for Voice of America, McKellips was detailed and deployed to the Iraq War during the “surge.” He was embedded with four Iraqi journalists at an abandoned radio and TV station in the volatile Diyala Province where his crew soon became the largest independent broadcasters in Iraq. McKellips was also deployed to Afghanistan where he served as the NATO public affairs media trainer to the Afghan National Army. After almost eight years as the executive vice president of public affairs at the Foundation for Biomedical Research, McKellips founded ONE HEALTH RESEARCH. Over the past few years, McKellips has made more than 350 multimedia presentations to more than 30,000 biomedical researchers worldwide. His original TV series – Bench to Bedside – has already earned ten Emmy nominations. McKellips is also the author of three biomedical thrillers: UNCAGED (2011), JERICHO 3 (2012) and BOX 731 (2013). His fourth novel – INVIDIOUS – will be released November 3, 2015.

Lunch will be served to registered participants in Building 12.
