In early May 2020, we’ve contacted those who had ‘passed through the lab’ since 2000 as part- or full-time Research Technicians volunteers, High School students, student interns from the New York Bioscience & Biotechnology Technician Program at Hunter College, and NCI Summer Medical Student Fellows.
46 ‘alumni’ (22 technicians, 13 Hunter College interns, 5 NCI fellows, 5 volunteers, 1 pre-doctoral fellow) were successfully reached. The majority of the past full time Lab Members (research technicians, research assistants, fellows, students, or trainees), have obtained graduate and doctoral degrees in medicine (38.50%), biotechnology (30.80%), engineering (7.70%), and business (7.70%).
Currently, 52% hold positions in research (including hospital and not-for-profit), 16% in healthcare, 16% in academia and education, and 8% in biotechnology.
At present, 38.40% are pursuing a Master’s degree; and 19.1% are pursuing a PhD, DDS, MD, DSc, or a MD-PhD.
