Meet the IZFS Members

  With this issue of News Splash, we introduce two new regular IZFS newsletter features - “Meet the Investigator” and “Featured Trainee” columns.  These columns list the answers that we received to 20 questions that we posed to randomly selected Primary Investigator (for the “Meet the Investigator” column) or postdoc or student (for the “Featured Trainee” column) IZFS members.  Through these columns we introduce you to some of your colleagues in the worldwide zebrafish research community - or if you  already know them, perhaps learn a few interesting or surprising things about them that you might not have appreciated.  Questions cover a broad range of topics, science and career-related and personal.  We hope that these columns will not only help our readers learn more about the scientific interests and accomplishments of their colleagues, but also what motivates them, why they got into science, and what they do in their spare time.  The zebrafish research community has always been very close-knit and interactive, and we hope that these regular short columns featuring established and up-and-coming IZFS member scientists will help to bring us all just a little bit closer!
