To bridge the gap between academia and industry by providing opportunities for academics to network with professionals and build their career knowledge.
The Life Sciences Career Development Society (LSCDS) serves to enhance the awareness of post-graduation career options. The LSCDS is managed entirely by graduate students with an interest in industry and support from the Faculty of Medicine (FoM) and School of Graduate Studies at the University of Toronto. As the largest and only FoM recognized career development society, our goal is to introduce potential career paths for graduate students in the life sciences. Our target population includes current graduate students (Ph.D., M.Sc.), post-doctoral fellows and research associates from U of T and its affiliated teaching hospitals.
