Genetics Training Program (GTP)

The Genetics Training Program (GTP) is designed for PhD students who are already in a UCSD doctoral degree program and have an interest in Genetics and Genomics. CMM Professor Dr. Larry Goldstein launched GTP in 1998 and served as its first director. Dr. Hamilton has directed the program since 2008.
