A broad range of postdoctoral training opportunities are available, including basic laboratory research and clinical training. Training programs that result in eligibility for certification by the American Board of Medical Genetics (ABMG) are available in clinical genetics, clinical cytogenetics, clinical biochemical genetics, and clinical molecular genetics. The ABMG Medical Genetics Residency Program is approved by the Residency Review Committee of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
Research Postdoctoral Training
There are over 100 postdoctoral trainees in the laboratories of the training faculty, most of whom are pursuing research training without any clinical or diagnostic laboratory component. Examples of research areas include developmental biology, Drosophila genetics, epigenetics, gene regulation, genomics, positional cloning, molecular analysis of disease, molecular cytogenetics, mouse genetics, gene therapy, yeast genetics, and others specified in the faculty member profiles. Postdoctoral fellows seeking research experience without ABMG training are encouraged to send their inquiries directly to the individual faculty members.
