Mario Strazzabosco, is Professor of Gastroenterology at Università Milano-Bicocca and Full Professor at Yale University School of Medicine.
In this mentorship lecture to the Seattle ISSNAF Chapter, Strazzabosco recounts his professional path and emphasizes the relevance of international collaborations.
Planning an effective career path based on good information is crucial to enhance researcher’s excellence and competitiveness.
This career symposium took place during the 2013 ISSNAF annual meeting with the aim of providing advices, tips and suggestions to create a clear and competitive career path for young Italian investigators in North America.
Young ISSNAF is the “network-inside-the-network” of under-40 ISSNAF affiliates, Italian investigators and scholars of all areas of scientific and academic research.
Young-ISSNAF is a platform for promoting career opportunities, a virtual space to share experiences, seek advice and find collaborators.
We are willing to take the challenge of prospering with wisdom, expertise, dignity and knowledge outside of Italy, within a community of Italians, ready to do our part for the growth of our Nation.
Research in Italy
