This is for all Bay Area Biotech professionals who are from an Asian and especially South Asian backgrounds. I am from Bangalore, India who moved to the Bay after my MS in Oregon. Throughout all my transitions points - from India to US and from academia in Oregon to job searching in the Bay Area, I have felt a need to build a niche support network for myself and others. I feel mentorship and guidance from experienced biotech professionals would be super valuable for the ones who are starting out in their careers.
