"I'm thankful for all the opportunities you and the biotech center gave me to keep updated on the field throughout these last three years that I was looking for a job. Because of your work, your kindness, and helpful advice, it was not difficult to keep a positive attitude and keep on the search. Thank you for the BPD symposia, the monthly networking sessions/talks/presentations, the Toastmasters group, and so much more that you guys offer."
