: Networking skills are important to maximizing your ability to have a productive and long-lasting career in clinical pharmacology. Being open and ready to meet other researchers at the ASCPT Annual Meeting is important to finding collaborators who will complement your research, brainstorm ideas for future research projects, and open up future opportunities for you in your career. What are the important skills needed to advance your ability to network successfully? If you are early in your career, how should you approach someone more senior about collaboration? What approaches lead to optimal outcomes for you? How (and how much) do you follow-up?
