Genetics, Cellular & Molecular Sciences Training Grant
The NIH-funded Genetics, Cellular and Molecular Sciences (GCMS) Training Grant program has a long history of mentoring outstanding graduate students dating back to its founding in the 1950's by the renowned geneticists H.J. Muller, Salvador Luria, Tracy Sonneborn, Ralph Cleland and Marcus Rhoades, that continues through its outstanding faculty of today. Training faculty have strengths in molecular genetics, development, cell biology, microbiology, biochemistry, structural biology, molecular evolution, and genomics. Graduate trainees are immersed in an inherently multidisciplinary environment with a tradition of excellence that promotes problem-directed approaches to biology. The GCMS training grant is comprised of over 50 faculty mentors and supports 16 graduate trainees in Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry and Medical Sciences each year. Students are offered trainee positions upon admission into the graduate program, or are nominated by the faculty.
