Genetics and Epigenetics Academics
G&E students typically complete their degree in 5 - 6 years. Students complete coursework and a thesis proposal-based Preliminary Exam within Years 1 and 2. Years 3+ are spent primarily on thesis research, supplemented by a variety of seminars and other activities that promote scientific interactions and continued development of communication and other career-relevant skills. After successfully passing the prelim exam, trainees become eligible for GEN-TG support.
