Faculty Mentor Team

As MD-PhD students, we will face the challenges experienced by both women MDs and PhDs and we would like to know how to best prepare to succeed in a career in science. To achieve insight into our future challenges and how to overcome them, we have assembled a diverse team of faculty mentors that are successful scientists who are interested in providing advice and guidance to MD-PhD students.

Our faculty advisor:

Susan Henning, PhD, Professor in Medicine

Dr. Henning came to UNC in 2007 from Baylor College of Medicine, where she developed a program linking clinicians with basic scientists to improve overall research at that institution.  She continues to facilitate these interactions at UNC, where she is heavily involved in the TraCS K-Award program. Her research focuses on the isolation and characterization of intestinal stem cells, and she recently received the AGA Distinguished Mentor Award! Dr. Henning also provides invaluable support to our group as our official faculty advisor.
