To all Junior Scientists in the field of Neurogenetics,
We want to hear from you! We are postdocs from the groups of Drs.Oliver Hobert (Columbia University), Cecilia Moens (Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center) and Kate O’Connor-Giles (Brown University). We are interested in writing an article about the perspectives of early-career scientists (graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and junior principal investigators) on the future of Neurogenetics research, to be included in the upcoming special Neurogenetics Series in Genetics. By completing this questionnaire, your perspectives on the future of Neurogenetics research may be featured in the article.
Your timely feedback is much appreciated!

Dates: June 21-25, 2021
Name: 23rd International C. elegans Conference
Location: Anywhere and Everywhere (virtual)
Organizers: Barbara Conradt and Piali Sengupta
Description: The International C. elegans Conference takes place every two years and features cutting-edge research in a diverse array of topics, including physiology, neurobiology, development, evolution, behavior, aging, ecology, gene regulation, genomics, and more. For 2021, #Worm21 has been reimagined for a virtual platform and will focus on early career researchers at every stage.
