Abstract

Attracting, supporting, and retaining the next generation of young scientists into the field of animal breeding and genetics is important for the future of global livestock systems. The introduction of a Young Scientist Career Development session at the 12th WCGALP provides an invaluable platform to discuss the challenges, but more importantly, opportunities and solutions to foster the development of our next generation of animal breeders. A highlight of this session will be a facilitated panel discussion with Assoc. Prof. Daniela Lourenco (University of Georgia), Prof. Jennie Pryce (Agriculture Victoria Research and LaTrobe University), Prof. John Hickey (Bayer Crop Science) and Prof. Johan van Arendonk (Hendrix Genetics). These challenges will not be solved through a single panel discussion, or conference session. However, providing a platform for the WCGALP community to come together and work collaboratively on solutions to support young scientist career development is an important first step.
