Steering Committee

The Steering Committee establishes program policies and evaluates new faculty applicants. It consists of the Director of Graduate Studies, the Student Services Administrator, four faculty, and two student representatives:

Samir Kelada, PhD, Associate Professor of Genetics
William Kim, MD, Distinguished Professor of Medicine (Oncology)
Katie Hoadley, PhD, Assistant Professor of Genetics
Kacy Gordon, PhD, Assistant Professor of Biology

Jeanne-Marie McPherson, PhD Student (Daniel McKay & Bob Duronio labs)
Marielle Bond, PhD Student (Hyejung Won & Doug Phanstiel labs)

Matters that involve specific students or personnel, including students for training grant appointments and ruling on request for exemptions for GMB policies, are handled by the Executive Committee, which is the Steering Committee without the student representatives.
