Developing a scientific question is an essential first step in doing research. A well-formulated question focuses your research and guides your experimental approach. Join for this live Q&A where panelists will offer practical strategies and advice on developing a research question that is specific, meaningful, and feasible. Panelists will discuss some fundamental characteristics of a good scientific question and important points to consider as you contemplate what you want to study or, if you already started a project, how you want to move it forward.
