About This Event

Summary

Women have achieved significant accomplishments in medicine and science, yet comprise a relatively small proportion of faculty, especially at the highest ranks and positions of leadership. As a result, women faculty tend to have smaller professional networks than male colleagues and have fewer role models of success.

The Stepping Stones of Women in Leadership series is intended to create a forum where all faculty and students can learn about professional development through hearing the personal career journeys of successful women.

Please join us in honoring the career of Dr. Tatiana Foroud.

About the Featured Guest:

Dr. Tatiana Foroud serves as the P. Michael Conneally Professor and Chancellor’s Professor, Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics at Indiana University School of Medicine. She came to Indiana University in 1990 to complete her graduate studies and upon completion in 1994, joined the faculty. Her primary area of research is statistical genetics – or the identification of genes contributing to disease. Her work has encompassed many different disorders including a number of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer disease and Parkinson disease. She also has an active program focused on the genetics of alcohol use disorders. In November of 2012, Tatiana became the Scientific Director of the Indiana Biobank which links a subject’s blood samples to their electronic medical record allowing a host of research-related questions to be addressed.

 

Sponsored by the IUSM Women's Advisory Council and the IUSM Office of Faculty Affairs and Professional Development.
