Participant Testimonials

Jan 10 - Jan 15, 2016

The Early Career Investigators Meeting on Quantitative Problems in Human Genetics and Health was incredibly useful. It allowed us to have detailed discussions on problems and opportunities at the edge of current research in genetics and genomics. The opportunity to discuss these issues in depth with a group of world-renowned experts is incredibly rare for junior investigators. In particular I found the meeting spurred interaction and understanding between people working in genetics and functional genomics, disciplines which have much to learn from each other but unfortunately less cross-talk than there should be. Upon returning home I already started a collaboration with one of the other participants that arose from our discussions there. Thank you for providing this crucial opportunity.

This was absolutely THE BEST conference I have ever attended. I believe that was a sentiment shared by many other attendees. Having a venue to assemble like minded scientists at the same career stage really allowed us to freely exchange ideas about the state of quantitative human genetics research. In fact, it was such a productive week that we are anxious to do this again.
