The Laboratory - Our group has twenty-four investigators, including three research Assistant Professors, nine postdoctoral fellows, ten graduate students (home departments Microbiology-Immunology, IBMS, Genetics, Biochemistry and Neurobiology) and two research technicians.  It is a cordial and highly motivated group of investigators, with divergent interests but lots of scientific and social interactions.  Students who are self-motivated and team players do extremely well in the lab.  Over ninety percent of the students finish in five years or under, and graduate with a substantial publication record.  Our most recent graduates have received postdoctoral offers from Harvard, Stanford, Caltech, Yale, UCSF, Salk Institute, Washington University and Columbia University.  A balance is achieved in the laboratory between close mentoring for new students and the freedom to explore new areas for more mature trainees.  Extra mentoring is provided during critical times such as prelims, student seminars, paper preparation, thesis defense, and job or postdoc hunting.
