BDI Seminar - Life at Nature Genetics: what we do, how scientific publishing works, and how I got here

Dr. Fletcher will discuss the journal Nature Genetics and what it is currently interested in. Offer advice on how to get papers published in Nature Genetics and other Nature journals and also offer some editorial career guidance.

Michael Fletcher studied for his Ph.D. at Cancer Research UK’s Cambridge Institute at the University of Cambridge in the laboratory of Bruce Ponder. His project used systems biology approaches to identify the functional mechanism by which FGFR2, a breast cancer risk locus identified using GWAS, exerts its effect. He then moved to Germany and was a postdoctoral fellow in the Molecular Genetics department of Peter Lichter at the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg, where he performed bioinformatics analysis to help characterize the epigenomic and master regulator landscapes of adult glioblastoma. He joined the journal Nature Genetics in 2020.
