GradConvos: Careers and Work-Life Balance with Fannie Mitchell Expert in Residence, Daniel Machemer

Tuesday, November 10, 2015
12:00 pm to 1:30 pm

Join this lunch discussion and Q&A with Fannie Mitchell Expert in Residence, Daniel Machemer '98, about finding a career with the right work-life balance. Daniel Machemer, PhD hopes to share his experiences in finding a career with the right amount of work-life balance in biotech, consulting, and biomedical research. Since graduating from Duke in 1998 with a BS in Biology, Daniel went to graduate school at UCSD to complete his PhD in pharmacology, followed by a postdoctoral position studying metabolism and inflammation. While still drawn to research, Daniel wanted to broaden his skill set and served as a consultant in biotech, pharma, and global health. He later transitioned to market analysis at Genentech where he can translate trends in biology to actual products. Currently, Daniel works at Genentech in science collaboration, building relationships with professional societies, liaising with medical experts, and promoting the scientific education of the company's employees. Daniel is looking forward to the opportunity to talk with graduate students about preparing for non-academic career paths.
