CSHL has long been recognized as a place for nurturing young scientists, with postdoctoral researchers being an integral part of the discovery process. The Laboratory’s postdoctoral fellows work in the labs of Principal Investigators, who conduct research within five areas—cancer, neuroscience, plant biology, quantitative biology and bioinformatics and genetics—in a very synergized and interactive way.
