Support the BEAT seminar series. Next up - Al Sandrock, MD PhD.
Jaharis Building in the spring

Dear Sackler Community,

We have a special treat this week on Thursday February 21 at 6PM when Al Sandrock, MD PhD will speak at this week’s BEAT seminar. Al is the executive vice president and chief medical officer at Biogen and led them to generating multibillion dollar drugs for the treatment of MS and other neurodegenerative diseases. His impact on human health has been profound. Al will tell his story of moving to Biogen supported by some and opposed by other mentors and how his leadership in research permitted the amazing growth that Biogen has enjoyed. He is a great scientist whose humility belies his passion and genius. Al has agreed to join my Dean’s board of advisors and his knowledge of how to succeed in research in biotechnology will add benefit to an already illustrious group. I hope that you will sign up to hear him RSVP here. We have also invited Sackler alumni so it will be a nice opportunity to network with them.

Dan Jay, Dean
