- After 38 years in academia, 19 years as the Head of a unit (@AnimEcol_UU), I have seen a lot and learnt a few things. Here are some of my reflections and experiences. Agrre or disagree, it is up to you. 1/17
- Science Friends: I got an NCI R35 Career Award. Between this, a few other grants, and a whole set of postdocs leaving to become assistant professors, I'm searching for 4 to 6 postdocs in computational/systems biology and biostats/health data science. t.co/wl2r2YzZQU
- Fascinating new PRS paper from @jorsmo &co. I particularly liked the PheWAS to show pleiotropy captured by schiz PRS. Great reminder that phenos often correlated, thus individual genetic risk factors are predictive (to varying degrees) of multiple traits. t.co/DypC6IJ0hr
