ABOUT LSI GRADS

The Life Sciences Institute (LSI) opened in 2003 with the goal of improving human health through scientific collaboration. Over the next 10 years, the LSI grew to represent a unique mix of faculty and students from over ten University of Michigan departments, investigating questions as diverse as stem cell biology, aging, drug discovery, and the genetics of human disease. As the seeds of scientific discovery are found at the junctions between disciplines, the LSI graduate students are eager to take advantage of the potential and opportunity of this collaborative environment. In 2012, the LSI Grads was founded with this purpose in mind.

The goals of the LSI Grads are:

    • to communicate scientific goals and achievements to scientists, non-scientist professionals, and the public
    • learn from scientists from a wide range of careers in academia, industry, business, law, media, and government to understand how the life sciences interfaces with other areas
    • further nurture the LSI's sense of community
    • introduce new members to the students, faculty, and resources of the LSI
    • create awareness of the wide variety of projects being carried out in the LSI
