Making your next career steps can be a tricky decision. Starting off in Bioinformatics or Biology but where do you go from here? Should you continue a career in academia? Or should you jump-start your career in industry? What's the best career path for you based on your skillset?

DKFZ Alumni currently working in different fields of Academia and Industry - Omics, Artificial Intelligence, Consulting and Data Science- will give us an insight into possible career options.

Come join the event to understand how starting off in bioinformatics shaped them for their future and gain valuable pro-tips to enable us to make informed career decisions for our future.
