Sokolowski PhD, FRSC, has trail-blazed the development of a branch of Behaviour Genetics that addresses the genetic, molecular environmental underpinnings of natural individual differences in behaviour and is best known for her discovery of the foraging gene. Her innovative work is esteemed worldwide as a clear, integrative mechanistic paragon of the manner in which genes can interact with the environment and impact behavior.
