How has CSI³ helped you?

What advice would you like to give to your fellow scholars?
Just as Walt Disney once said, “Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things…and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” Don't stop and keep moving forwards.

Applying to different pharmaceutical jobs and research positions.
