CSD People - Desmosome from P. Koch's Lab


We are an interactive group, with a strong emphasis on collaboration and cooperation. Faculty are deeply engaged in student mentoring; they provide both oversight and support as students work toward their doctoral degree. The intent is to train students as future academic peers, and provide a rigorous and engaging intellectual environment for all program members.

Members of the CSD Program currently include:

    • 34 full time PhD students
    • 51 faculty from 16 academic and clinical departments
