Hackley IRP Group Learn About Problem Solving

Michael Derby P ’28, ’30, Founder and CEO of Castle Creek Pharmaceuticals, visited the Independent Research Program students on April 20, 2018. Read on.
During his visit, he discussed how the research he conducted in neuroscience during his MS and BS trained him to think about how to tackle problems, and how he still uses the scientific method within the business world. The students were impressed and motivated by knowing that their research skills could lead to another career path.

Hackley’s IRP would like to invite alumni and parents with scientific research backgrounds to come and talk with our students. The students love hearing about your stories while you were doing research, and how it led you to whatever field you are in now. Interested alumni/parents should feel free to contact Andrew Ying.
