For last 12 years, I have been involved with the Interdisciplinary Biomedical Graduate Program (IBGP) as part of the Cellular and Molecular Pathology and Molecular Pharmacology Graduate Programs. I am also the director and PI for the Cellular Approaches to Tissue Engineering & Regeneration program (T32) and training faculty on other grants such as Angiogenesis training program (T32) and on training grant for the Department of Medicine. I am deeply involved in MSTP training and am the course director for their longitudinal clinical clerkship. I have served as course director for various courses offered to the graduate students including “Stem Cells” and “Research Seminars in Regenerative Medicine”. I have trained several pre- and post-doctoral trainees. In addition, I have served as chair and member on thesis committees for various graduate students. I have also been involved with the admissions committee and recruitment committee for the IBGP program as well as for CATER program at the School of Medicine. I consider the education and mentorship mission of our institute, division and training program, of pivotal importance in sustaining and further developing excellent and multidisciplinary research programs that will assure a successful impact on human disease in the long run.
