Alumni mixer and baseball night

As part of National Postdoc Appreciation Week (September 18-22), the Society of Research Fellows held an engaging discussion with a panel of alumni who had completed their postdoctoral training at the Institute before following a variety of career paths. The panel featured Maya Capelson, associate professor at San Diego State University; Lawrence Fourgeaud, principal scientist at The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson; Fangjian Gao, senior scientist at Odyssey Therapeutics; and Amir Zarrinpar, associate professor and gastroenterologist at UC San Diego. Later in the week, alumni attended a baseball game together at Petco Park. The group cheered for the San Diego Padres on September 19 as they took on the Colorado Rockies, watching the Friars ultimately win on a walk-off home run.
