The Department of Pathology offers the Molecular and Cellular Pathology Graduate Program (MCP) for students who are interested in translational research – the step between basic science research and clinical care, the “bench-to-bedside” transition. Sahiti Marella is a graduate student in the MCP who was recently awarded her first F31 grant. This is an NIH-funded predoctoral grant that provides awardees with a monthly stipend to support tuition and fees, and funds for training-related costs while they conduct their PhD research project, for up to five-years of funding.
A Perspective by Dr. Noah Brown
Dr. Chen Yang joined the faculty of the Michigan Medicine Departments of Pathology and Pediatrics in a joint recruitment effort in July 2020. He serves as the associate director of the Clinical Cytogenetics Lab (Pathology) and MMGL Molecular Genetics Lab (Pediatrics). Yang’s appointment is rather unique in that he has a 50% appointment in each department. Usually, faculty have a primary appointment in one department and a secondary “dry” appointment in another department.
