Jackson Laboratory and Tufts University announce new Ph.D. track in mammalian genetics
Date:1/5/2011

Medicine and director of the genetics graduate program at the Sackler School.

"These students in genetics also have the opportunity to attend medical genetics rounds at Tufts Medical Center and the Floating Hospital for Children, interacting with physician-trainees. These experiences give students a special appreciation for the genetic diseases that affect people, ultimately helping to foster the collaborative research that will bring us closer to linking basic science research to cures for disease and the development of personalized medicine," he continues.

Trainees begin their studies in Maine in the first week of July, prior to the start of the usual academic year. First-year research rotations will be distributed between the Boston and Maine campuses. Students will conduct their Ph.D. research at JAX, where varied biomedical research opportunities include cancer biology, genetics of complex traits, neurobiology, bioinformatics/computational biology and many other areas.
