The training faculty are scientists from seven academic units in six colleges of the University. These include Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Molecular Biosciences, Molecular Plant Sciences, and Veterinary Microbiology and Pathology.
Affiliation with Ph.D. programs are noted to emphasize the interdisciplinary network that is a hallmark of the organization of biological science departments at WSU. Because of these multiple affiliations, graduate students in any given laboratory are likely to be in different Ph.D. programs and thus they receive first-hand experience in the fundamentally interdisciplinary nature of contemporary research.
Prospective and new trainees are encouraged to contact faculty members conducting research they may be interested in. Our trainers are committed to helping new trainees find the laboratory and mentor that best fits the strengths and plans of the students, as well as what is needed to continue the cutting edge research that is going on in the program.
