Teaching Activities

Members of the division are actively involved in teaching UCSD graduate and medical students. Several members of the faculty (Frazer, Barrett, and Smith) participated in teaching the graduate level course on quantitative methods in genetics as well as lectures in the Stem Cell Course and the medical genetics course. The faculty provides formal lectures in a variety of conferences on the UCSD campus attended by students and clinical residents including the Bioinformatics graduate student lecture series. Dr. Harismendy is providing continuous Genomic Study Design and Analysis support to faculty and staff through his appointment at the Clinical and Translational Research Institute.
