The majority of PhDs trained in biomedical sciences do not remain in academia. In Career Options for Biomedical Scientists from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, they are now presented with a broad variety of career options, including science journalism, publishing, science policy, patent law, and many more. This book examines the numerous different careers that scientists leaving the bench can pursue, from the perspectives of individuals who have successfully made the transition. In each case, the book sets out what the job involves and describes the qualifications and skills sets required.
