Dana Hancock, PhDPlease join us for a summer series of short, focused career conversations with former Duke PhD students and postdocs. On June 16, our guest is Dana Hancock, PhD '08 (Genetics), Sr. Genetic Epidemiologist and Director of the Center for Omics Discovery and Epidemiology at RTI International. 

5 Questions:
1.  Can you tell us about your background?
2.  How did you get your job at RTI?
3.  What's a typical day like at RTI (pre- and post-COVID)?
4.  What can postdocs and students who would like to work in this field (or explore it further) do to prepare?
5.  What is the employment outlook for this field, given the COVID crisis? (please note that the answer to this question may be "we don't know yet")
