Tilghman SM. (2014) Twists and turns: a scientific journey. Annu Rev Cell Dev Biol. 30: 1-21. Pubmed

Although I no longer have an active research laboratory, I welcome the opportunity to advise juniors and seniors in their independent work. Some examples of senior theses that I have advised in recent years are:

  • "Human obesity:  Genetics, epigenetics & therapeutic opportunities"
    BJ Sullivan ‘11

  • "Beyond the “$1000 genome”:  From third-generation sequencing to personalized medicine" Nikhil Basu Trivedi ‘11

  • "Complementary and alternative medicine in the United States: The role of rigorous scientific evaluation" Molly Kantor '08

  • "One more for "one less": Increasing the availability of vaccines targeting human Papillomavirus in the developing world" Anita Gupta '08
