The program has a stellar team of ~40 highly collaborative, multidisciplinary mentors. Their common goal is to provide the best training experience to help form the next generation of leaders in genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics research.

Collectively, they offer a wide range of chronic disease research opportunities including cancers, cardiovascular, psychiatric and behavioural, neurological, metabolic and autoimmune disorders, asthma and allergies, and normal growth and development.

All mentors have a strong record of successfully training graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and/or post-MD fellows.

Mentors by Discipline

Supervisory teams comprise mentors from each of the three STAGE targeted disciplines, set out below.

This diverse and structured training approach enables trainees to:

  • achieve their full potential in their primary discipline or particular graduate program, and
  • enrich their knowledge and skills in complementary, specialized disciplines required for advanced genetic epidemiologic research.

Mentorship Panels

Mentorship panels are composed of three mentors, one from each of the program’s three main disciplines, where at least one mentor belongs to subsections
