Trainee shares experience with new cohort

Training for interdisciplinary research activities became quite personal with examples and role models from our own IGERT project. James Kang from the first cohort not only published interdisciplinary papers but also talked about his personal experience during the annual retreat. His talk traced the history of his efforts towards interdisciplinary collaboration, including two false starts, and ultimate success in third attempt in finding a problem which could advance multiple sciences. Trainees from incoming cohort responded well to his presentation.
