Growing Up in Science
Have you ever wondered what your professor struggled with as a student? Or what challenges your advisor faced before getting their PhD? Growing up in Science is a conversation-style event series about becoming and being a scientist; UPenn faculty members share their life stories with a focus on their struggles, failures, doubts, and detours. This is an opportunity to learn from personal experiences and to engage in a conversation about the unspoken difficulties faced in a life in science.
