Junior Scientists Advisory Group

In 2023, LEAP established the Junior Scientists Advisory Group (JSAG) to foster transparency and communication throughout the LEAP community, as well as promote a deeper sense of community within our Center.  Current JSAG members are listed below.

JSAG activities and responsibilities include:

  • Liaison representation at a portion of the monthly LEAP Executive Committee meeting
  • Providing input regarding Center events, such as Journal Club meetings
  • Spearheading community-building events and social activities
