Pre-Approved Graduate Faculty

In consultation with their PSTP Career Advisors, students may CHOOSE lab and thesis advisors from ANY graduate faculty in Departments linked with the PSTP. Once a potential faculty member has been identified, we request the faculty NIH Biosketch, support pages and training record for review and approval by the PSTP Steering Committee.

THE FOLLOWING list of pre-approved graduate training faculty identifies graduate program directors and faculty who:

  1. Currently are supporting an PSTP student in their lab

    or

  2. Attend and participate in the PSTP activities (e.g. retreat, committees, teach courses, etc.) along with submitting NIH Biosketch, training record and support pages to Laila C. Lee (laila.lee@pitt.edu) for review by the PSTP Steering Committee.

We revise this list every September following the PSTP retreat.
