Students in the department pursue Ph.D. and M.S. degrees through training in either of two graduate programs within the University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. In addition to research training, these programs offer students numerous opportunities to participate in research seminars presented by leading scientists and to build career skills through courses and workshops.
The Genes and Development (G&D) Graduate Program is for students seeking advanced training in biomedical research on the fundamental molecular mechanisms that control growth and cell differentiation, and that cause cancer and other human diseases. For more information, please contact Elizabeth Lindheim at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Human and Molecular Genetics (HMG) Graduate Program is for students seeking advanced training in genetics, focusing on molecular mechanisms of human disease.
Stipend, tuition, supplies and travel support for predoctoral and salary, supplies and travel support for postdoctoral trainees within the Department of Genetics are provided by a National Cancer Institute funded training grant on the Molecular Genetics of Cancer (T32 CA009299). The Principle Investigator of the training grant is Dr. Guillermina (Gigi) Lozano. For more information, please contact Lisa Gower at email@example.com.
Additional Training Opportunities
Research Experiences for Undergraduates
Many of the labs in the Department of Genetics offer research training for undergraduates, including but not limited to those from Rice University and the University of Houston. Opportunities are available year-round and interested undergraduates are encouraged to contact lab heads directly by email. During the summer many college students pursue research in the department through one of the MD Anderson summer research programs.
