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, Assistant Professor of Genetics
William Kim, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine
Karen Mohlke, PhD, Professor of Genetics
Kacy Gordon, PhD, Assistant Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine

Rachel Cherney, PhD Student (Mauro Calabrese lab)
Jack Sanford , PhD Student (Yanping Zhang lab)

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.
