GSBS Holds Inaugural Alumni Reunion

Date Posted: Wednesday, May 17, 2017

The GSBS held its inaugural GSBS Alumni Reunion on Saturday May 6th in collaboration with the Alumni Office. This first-ever GSBS Reunion, which attracted 28 of our alumni from across the country, began with a barbecue luncheon, featured student-led tours of our newest research facilities, highlighted research by several of our outstanding scientists, and culminated in a GSBS dinner/reception. As a special event, our students partnered with the GSBS Center for Biomedical Career Development to host an Alumni Networking event, “Life After the PhD”, at which invited alumni joined current students and postdocs in roundtable discussions of topics at the intersection of science, career, and life. Partners and families participated in all events, including tours of the Worcester Art Museum and family-friendly games.

The GSBS alumni have gone on to contribute to science in a number of ways: from founding biotechnology companies to directing and supporting research by interdisciplinary teams in academia and industry, from enhancing science education in the classroom to volunteering in the community. It was exciting to welcome our alumni back to UMass Medical School. They enjoyed reconnecting with colleagues, inspired our current students, and were thrilled to learn how our research and research facilities have evolved as a result of the work they undertook while here as graduate students. We look forward to next year's reunion event.
