Graduate and Post-Doctoral Training Opportunities
Dr. Thuy Phung is a faculty of the Baylor College of Medicine Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. She is a member of the following graduate programs:
We want to provide a stimulating and productive research environment in the lab. Our work is goal-oriented, and projects are developed and executed by the trainee with mentoring and guidance from Dr. Phung. The main objective for each project is to understand disease mechanisms based upon which new therapies can be developed to improve the therapeutic outcome of the diseases being investigated in the lab.
The educational goal is to help trainees acquire important analytical and scientific skills necessary for further advancement in a scientific career. Trainees will have regular one-on-one meeting with Dr Phung to discuss their research progress and career goals. The lab has a weekly journal club and data presentation to serve as platforms for trainees to learn how to critically evaluate the scientific literature, and to effectively communicate their research findings. We are looking for motivated individuals who find that science is a rewarding career path to pursue.
