You can't accuse us of having good timing. Our salary survey this year came out during a few major grant application deadlines and some of the field’s most popular conferences — including the BIO annual meeting and Cold Spring Harbor’s wildly oversubscribed Biology of Genomes. Still, nearly 1,800 of you somehow managed to find time to respond. I can’t thank you enough. After all, without your input, our annual salary report wouldn’t be the treasure trove of useful data that it is.
