Program Representatives

We need representatives! If you are interested in representing your program as an MS or PhD student, please contact us at MCGSO, email:

PhD Program Representatives:

  • Interdisciplinary Neuroscience: George Melchan, Holly Kortras, and Joey Posner
  • Tumor Biology: Garrett Graham and Shannon White
  • Biochemistry & Molecular Biology: Deran Erdengiz
  • Microbiology & Immunology: Manasa Suresh and Suzie Stephenson
  • Pharmacology: Amanda Schneeweis
  • Global Infectious Disease: Elizabeth Lee

Masters Program Representatives:

  • Biohazardous Threat Agents & Emerging Infectious Diseases: Kelsey Manfredi

Program Representatives: It is arguable that the most important members of the MCGSO are the Biomedical Graduate program representatives. Each biomedical graduate program has one representative; a PhD student for PhD programs, and a Masters student for Masters programs. The Program representatives are responsible for attending all MCGSO meetings and participating as committee members for either or both the Community Programming and Grant committees. If the designated Program Representative is unable to attend a meeting, we ask that they send a proxy representative to vote in the favor of that program in the event of any votes at the meeting in question. If you are interested in representing your program, please let us know!

Representatives are still needed for the following MS programs:

  • Biochemistry & Molecular Biology
  • Biomedical Technology Development & Management
  • Health Physics
  • Tumor Biology
