Academic Writing Dos and Don'ts

June 11, 2021 | 1 - 4 p.m.


Please join us June 11 for the second in an ongoing series of Career Development Seminars! These programs are designed for early-career professionals in gene and cell therapy, but will contain information that will help anyone in a scientific field looking to enhance their skills.

The three-hour seminar will be divided into three mini sessions. Each mini session has been created to help an early-career professional be more successful in an online setting. While most examples will focus on strategies specific to the ASGCT online platform being used for our Annual Meeting, the information should be able to be easily applied across other platforms and meetings.

In each mini session there will be content sent to each registered attendee for viewing BEFORE June 11. Utilizing this flipped classroom approach our presenters will be able to spend more time on applying the content rather than lecturing on the content. There will be considerable time in each mini session for Q&A .
