    How do proteins membranes nucleic acids membrane assemblies and high order complexes of these enormous molecules use physical chemical principles to act in the varied contexts that underlie biological function Faculty participating in this program share the conviction that the coherent operation of living cells and its disruption in disease is ultimately understandable in terms of the chemistry and physics of biological macromolecules This highly multidisciplinary program draws students from two types of undergraduate backgrounds those with more chemically based training Chemistry Biochemistry Biology majors and those from Physics Engineering or Mathematics who wish to bring quantitative skills to bear upon biological problems This student mix is meant to be mutually reinforcing so that during the trajectory to the Ph D degree all trainees master both chemical and quantitative approaches to the art of macromolecular analysis The program offers a rigorous curriculum of courses emphasizing macromolecular structure and function four student selected laboratory rotations during the first academic year original thesis research in laboratories operating on the edge of discovery practice in conveying scientific information via expository writing and public speaking specialized informal seminars discussion groups and journal clubs opportunities to present research results at professional scientific meetings An interactive

    Placements It is truly incredible to be part of a field that has changed so much in just two decades In my professional lifetime technological advances have given us the ability to perform non invasive prenatal testing test embryos to select for ones which do not carry familial disease causing mutations sequence the entire genome of an individual and predict a person s response to medications based on their genetic makeup We have gained a better understanding of the molecular basis of many diseases greatly increased the number of testing options available during pregnancy and identified many cancer susceptibility genes that we can use to test high risk individuals This tremendous progress has also contributed to the expansion of the field of genetic counseling beyond the traditional prenatal setting to now include areas such as cancer clinical research education and industry It is a certainly a very different world than the one I entered as a newly trained genetic counselor Twenty years ago I was a new graduate from the Master s Program in Human Genetics at Sarah Lawrence College eager to join this fascinating profession I began my career as a genetic counselor at Boston Children s Hospital in pediatrics and as coordinator of their Neurofibromatosis Program That same year Brandeis launched its own Master s Program in Genetic Counseling the first in Boston and admitted its inaugural class My connection to the Brandeis program began way back then as a clinical supervisor for some of the program s earliest students Our paths have been intertwined in many ways since then and our relationship grew culminating in my joining the faculty as Co Director of Clinical Training four years ago I am now a seasoned veteran in the profession and Brandeis is no longer a new training program But my passion for the field of genetic counseling and this program s commitment to providing the very best educational experience for its students are just as strong as they were when we both began our exciting journeys My enthusiasm for genetic counseling now focuses on shaping the future of the profession that I love watching our new graduates begin their first jobs helping our second years transition from students to professionals and welcoming a new and enthusiastic group who are excited to begin their training Working with students is such a meaningful experience and I cannot picture myself doing anything different at this point in my career I also cannot imagine doing this at any other training program than the one here at Brandeis Beth Rosen Sheidley Co Director Research and Professional Development It is difficult to believe that it has been 20 years since I entered the Brandeis Genetic Counseling Program as a member of the first class of 1994 and began my professional journey that spanned 3 cities and 4 genetic counseling positions before returning to Brandeis in 2005 to join the faculty Looking back on the last 7 years as a faculty member in the Genetic Counseling
