I gave a talk on the iGEM competition as a microcosm to understand team success in science at the Sunbelt 2018 conference in Utrecht, in the “Wicked problems” session. Had great feedback from the social sciences crowd, and a great conference overall! Taking back some new ideas to pursue, and hope to be at the next one in Montreal in 2019!
Our paper “A personalized, multiomics approach identifies genes involved in cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure” is in the news! I still remember the first time Alain Karma told me about this project, almost 5 years ago when I was finishing my PhD… A few months later I would be in Boston working on it, and there we are 4 years later. A great adventure, and many ideas for follow-ups!
