One of our Mission objectives here at The Pub Club is to Fill the Void. Of course, first you have to know what career you want to identify the skills you need! To help our members identify potential career options of interest, we like to bring in people who have or are currently pursuing those options.
Cait Thireault(He Lab) is a TPC member who decided to pursue a career in patent law after earning her Masters degree in the Howe lab. Before entering law school, Cait interned at MSU Technologies where she applied her scientific background to the patent process. This involved assessing the science to identify novel, patent-worthy ideas as well as communicating the science in language non-scientists could understand and discuss.
We look forward to hearing Cait’s firsthand experience on the transition from graduate school to law school and her personal reasons for pursuing this career option.
