University Startup Seminar is Wednesday, May 30, 2012


OMAHA, Neb. (May 28, 2012)—Most students are led to graduate school by dreams of making a significant discovery or inventing a lifesaving drug. However, slightly  less than half of all graduates receiving a PhD degree will continue to pursue their dreams in academic institutions, according to statistics. However, this doesn’t mean that the rest have to say goodbye to their dreams. An alternative career in a biotech startup is one of the opportunities that may turn out as rewarding.

Join us at noon on May 30th in the DRC Auditorium to learn about career opportunities in a biotech startup company. Dr Zagit Gaymalov will speak about what it takes to start a business and what it’s like to run one. Dr Gaymalov received his PhD degree from UNMC Pharmaceutical Sciences Graduate Program and continues his career as a technology transfer professional with UNeMed Corporation and CEO of NeuroNano Pharma, a biotech business he started with his PhD advisor Dr Alexander “Sasha” Kabanov.
