Welcome to our new students! An exciting year awaits everyone at Sackler and our staff are here to help.
Jaharis Building in the spring

Welcome to our new students. You are beginning the journey to your career and I hope that it will be fruitful. Know that we are all here to help you succeed and challenge you to be your best selves. Our mission is to train you to career excellence across the biomedical workforce. We hope that at Sackler, you will find your career passion and our job is to give you the training and experience to compete, excel and lead. Throughout the year we will have career events that we inform you about the many career paths including academia open to you and provide opportunities for real world knowledge and networking with leaders including Sackler alumni.

Our kickoff event of the year is the first BEAT (Biomedical Entrepreneurs at Tufts) seminar of the year. We are honored to welcome Bill Cummings to speak. Bill is the founder of Cummings Properties which he grew from his first business purchased for $4,000 to become a multi-billion dollar enterprise with over 100 buildings. Please sign up for Bill’s talk on how to become an entrepreneur here! Attendees will receive a free copy of his book that Bill will sign.

I also hope to meet many of you all at today’s welcoming reception at 3:30 in the Jaharis Courtyard. Please come by and say hi.

Daniel Jay, Dean
