Program Faculty

The mentorship, laboratory training and classroom education of doctoral students at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) can be credited almost entirely to the tremendous investment in time and effort by the more than 150 TSRI faculty members actively involved in the Graduate Program.

A faculty-to-student ratio of 1:1.7 benefits graduate students by affording them unparalled access to world-class scientists with expertise in a variety of research areas. The number of faculty who serve as mentors to graduate students is also high: 85 faculty members advise one or more graduate students in their laboratory. To learn more about faculty members’ involvement in the training of students, including serving as course directors for classes and on students’ advisory committees, visit our Student Achievement page.
