We sat down with Rip at the Naturejobs career expo, Boston, to talk about his career and the advice he would give to other scientists starting theirs.
Rip’s had an interesting life; he started his career as a researcher at the US army’s Walter Reed Institute of Research, where he once exposed himself to malarial mosquitoes in a bid to see if his malarial vaccine worked. It didn’t, and that experience has motivated him in his career ever since. He’s now the head of US vaccines at GSK.
Here’s a word art graphic of five points from Rip’s talk, by Jacopo Sacquegno.
Sad you missed it? There’s still time to join us at the Naturejobs career expo, London, for more great career talks, and to meet potential employers.
