Training Faculty

The training faculty for the Program in Genetics and Development includes all the faculty of the department as well as additional faculty in other departments who have special interests in Genetics and Development (departments indicated below).

Students are also encouraged to form working relationships with other faculty throughout the University to foster interdisciplinary thinking and collaboration. Weekly seminars introduce students and faculty to the ideas of scientists from institutions around the world, and students are encouraged to attend seminars sponsored by other departments when the topic is relevant to their research, as well as professional meetings and conferences.
