Our reach amongst the entire medical campus shows the truly interdisciplinary nature of our program. All faculty have a primary appointment in their home departments and schools, but they also participate in one or more graduate training programs that are, in many cases, interdepartmental.  In addition, many of our faculty participate in additional federally-supported research training grants. Table 3 demonstrates how distinct training Program faculty with other programs is with the Program in Cellular and Molecular Biology (CMB), a PhD granting graduate program that trains a very high percentage of the students entering PIBS. CMB has a total of 151 faculty; 14 of our Training Program mentors also serve as mentors in this program. All other federally supported training grants have less than 10 of our Training Program faculty in common, with most having far less. We strongly consider diversity in the selection of our Training Program faculty.
