Welcome ! The MSTP community is back safer and stronger: All of our faculty, students and staff have had the opportunity to become vaccinated; we will host graduation dinner in May and fall classes are to take place in person. Our students have shown amazing resilience while achieving high academic honors, publishing outstanding research, and strengthening our community. To recognize their contributions and to support their initiatives in promoting diversity and social justice, we have established the MSTP fund for excellence. We are very grateful for the generous donations from current and former students, family, friends, staff and faculty. The ability to build this community means a lot to our program.
Lastly, please mark your calendars - this year we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the MD/PhD program with a retreat in the fall. We hope to see many of you there. (read more)
