Neurogenetics Questionnaire

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!
