The Department of Genome Sciences is committed to creating an environment that is welcoming and inclusive. Our goal is to foster a place of learning and working where all members can thrive and where diversity is recognized and celebrated. At Genome Sciences, we aim to create supportive spaces for those who are marginalized in higher education or society. To achieve this, we recognize that it is our ongoing responsibility to understand, acknowledge, and challenge systems of privilege and disadvantage in higher education such as those based on race, color, creed, caste, religion, national origin, citizenship, sex, age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, veteran status, or socioeconomic status.

Genome Sciences is pleased to announce that Dr. Alison Feder has accepted our offer to be an assistant professor and will join the department in 2021. Dr. Feder is currently a Miller Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley. She is a mathematical biologist who studies evolutionary forces that drive rapid adaptation, such as that seen in viruses becoming resistant to drugs.
Genome Sciences is pleased to announce that Dr. Devin Schweppe has accepted our offer to be an assistant professor and has joined our department. Dr. Schweppe comes to Genome Sciences from the lab of Dr. Steven Gygi at Harvard Medical School, where he was a postdoctoral fellow. Dr. Schweppe develops proteomics methods to analyze dynamic cellular signaling networks.
