ACCSN Presents to Middlesex University Biochemistry Students

ACCSN had the pleasure of presenting to third-year Biochemistry students at Middlesex University on Friday, November 18th. The session was hosted by the University of Middlesex, who sought to provide its students with an understanding of the Commercial Science industry and the potential career paths they could pursue.

During the session, the ACCSN team discussed the various areas of Commercial Science, including life sciences, pharma, biotechnology, diagnostics, instrumentation, molecular biology, chemistry, medical devices, and immunology. They also outlined the roles available in Commercial Science, such as applications, marketing, sales, technical, and more.

The team also highlighted the importance of mentorship, resources, and growth opportunities in nurturing young talent and supporting professionals in their career development.
