Slice of Science Socials – join us for a chat & a slice every 2nd Tuesday of the month!

Starting February 8th 2022, join us for pizza lunches every 2nd Tuesday of the month in Room B at Berkner Hall (Bldg. 488) with your fellow post-docs and students! After much isolation as post-docs and students over the last 2 years, ASAP is providing a safe and healthy environment for socialization among friends where we can connect, socialize, and learn more about one another. During these lunches, we will invite a variety of speakers to present on topics to help young researchers succeed at BNL! Stay tuned for upcoming speaker announcements.


Slice of Science Social 4.12.22

ASAP hosted guest speakers Poorni Upadhya (BNL Office of Research) and Dorene Price (BNL Legal Office) for an enlightening talk on Technology Transfer at BNL at Berkner Hall with a focus towards how Intellectual Property is managed at Brookhaven. The talk provided a glance at the process, the DOE mission, the lifecycle of lab to technology and stressed on the involvement of a community of researchers and entrepreneurs to make it a successful endeavor. The event proved enriching and exciting, bringing in several questions from the postdoc and student community.
