A Career Meet-Up is a chance to gather a number of interested students together with a company representative for informal discussion about industry in general, networking, and internships. The first part of the session will feature a presentation by Matt and Michelle, and the second part will be an open discussion/Q&A for students to ask questions. This would be a great way to network and to explore the industry path!
Impel Neuropharma is a biotechnology start-up based in Seattle. Their goal is to enable drugs to bypass the blood brain barrier for treatment of diseases. They have developed a device called the Precision Olfactory Delivery device (POD), that works similarly to a nasal spray but is able to deliver drugs to the upper nasal cavity and bypass the blood brain barrier.
