Graduate Women In Science (GWIS)

Julie Fudge, M.D. Instructs a group of graduate students

Graduate Women In Science (GWIS) provides mentoring for the professional and personal development of all graduate women at the University of Rochester Medical Center and College of Arts and Sciences. Meetings tap into expertise and experience available at the Medical Center and College, and they also include presentations from outside guest speakers. Speakers include successful scientists in academics (universities, medical schools, and smaller teaching colleges), industry (large and start-up), forensics, grant management/program development (government agencies and private associations), science writing, journal editing, patent law, and clinical diagnostics.
