The Genetics Society of America (GSA) is excited to announce the latest cohort of student and postdoc leaders joining the Early Career Leadership Program

Participants receive training and mentoring while serving on committees charged with understanding the needs, interests, concerns, and challenges of early career scientist members of the GSA. As part of this leadership and professional development program, appointees develop programming and resources to advocate for the interests of the GSA, highlight important advancements originating within the genetics community, and build relationships with scientists in all sectors of the workforce.
