We are delighted to announce that Dr. Portman will assume the directorship of the graduate program in Genetics, Development and Stem Cells. Both a geneticist and neuroscientist at heart, Doug has been a long-standing member of the Department of Biomedical Genetics with joint appointments in the Departments of Biology and Neuroscience. He has also served as the director of the admission committee for the neuroscience graduate program and has been a reviewer and panel chair for the prestigious Ruth L. Kirchstein National Research Service Award fellowship program. He brings an extensive experience in graduate education to the table and we are excited that he has agreed to lead our GDSC program forward! Congratulations Doug!
