The young PI forum was created to help young PIs face their many new challenges. In most cases, no one prepared us to deal with any of these issues during the many years we spent in the classroom, on the bench, or in front of our computers. However, each of us have come up with solutions and ideas which we can share and use to support each other. We have found that peer support is a powerful way to find solutions to our mutual questions - making it easier for all of us to be better scientists.
