Navigating To and Through Mid-Career in Academic Science

Co-Sponsored by the American Society for Matrix Biology (ASMB) and The Histochemical Society (HCS)
June 29, 2022 12:00 PM (EDT)
Register to attend

The American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP) is pleased to be collaborating with The Histochemical Society (HCS) and the American Society for Matrix Biology (ASMB) for a series of career development e-Symposia. On June 29, we will focus on the daunting process of navigating from the early career to the mid-career phase in academia. We will discuss how to prepare for promotion and achieve it.

Topics will include:

  • Mental resilience
  • Dealing with the uncertainties of unstructured timelines of promotion
  • How to staff and manage your lab
  • How to know you have done "enough" to advance to the next level
  • How to see yourself as worthy of a promotion

In addition, we will have the hard conversation about when to have kids if so desired, and what to do when your "plan" changes. We will also discuss what’s in store for folks in the mid-career stage of academia including new expectations and the committee tax often paid.

Our panelists hail from HCS, ASMB, and ASIP in this our first tri-society webinar! Our panelists are both folks who have recently navigated the transition to associate professor and experienced senior academic decision-makers and letter writers. Come join us to share your experience and lessons learned and/or discuss your concerns and gain guidance.

ASIP Workshop: Rigor & Reproducibility

July 11, 2022 12:00 PM (EDT)
Register to attend

In this workshop, our speakers will share their unique perspectives as well as make recommendations on maintaining rigor and reproducibility in your scientific publications for longevity of impact as well as improving your international reputation as an author. Specifically, Dr. Magali Saint-Geniez, the current Chair of the ASIP’s Publication Committee, will share her perspectives as a researcher, author, and reviewer. Her research experience ranges from a laboratory setting in a high-performing academic research facility to her latest transition to big pharma company. Lindsay Allen, Senior Publisher at Elsevier who has worked on the ASIP journals, will share her perspective on best publishing practices and navigating the publication process.

Alexis Scherl, MD, PhD
Image Analysis in IBD

Alexis Scherl

Abstract: While numerous histologic scoring systems for Ulcerative Colitis disease activity have been developed, they are difficult to reliably implement, and are subject to inter- and inter-pathologist variability. A robust, reproducible, and high-throughput image analysis algorithm for scoring tissue biopsies would be highly desirable in a clinical trial context. In a translational research context, image analysis can provide in-depth characterization of the content of and spatial relationships between cells and tissue features within biopsies; this data can be leveraged to test specific hypotheses or for biomarker discovery.

Shawn O'Neil, DVM, PhD
Use of Mass Spectrometry to Localize and Quantify Test Articles in Tissue Sections

Shawn O'Neil

Abstract: Mass spectrometry (MS) provides a label-free method for identifying molecules in tissues based upon their chemical signature rather than using indirect approaches, such as IHC and ISH which rely on antibodies and molecular probes, respectively. In toxicologic pathology, MS methods are being developed to localize and measure test articles and their metabolites in tissues and to correlate these spatially with microscopic findings in tissue sections. This presentation will provide fundamental descriptions of spatial applications of MS technology, including MALDI mass spectrometry imaging (MALDI-MSI) as well as the combined use of laser capture microdissection (LCM) with conventional mass spec analysis (LCMS) as an alternative method that provides identification and quantification of molecules with limited spatial context.

Career Options in Science - Industry vs Academia

July 27, 2022 12:00 PM (EDT)
Register to attend

Are you in academia wondering what if would be like to be an industry scientist? Are you in the industry contemplating a career move to academia? In a moderated discussion with a panel of mid to senior-level scientists with backgrounds in academia, industry, or both, we will compare and contrast the two professional environments. What are the tradeoffs? How do the environments differ? What strategies work best for navigating between the two? Other, career options such as government may also be discussed. Our panelists hail from ASIP, ASMB, and HCS in this our second tri-society webinar!
