How to Prepare for and Apply to Ph.D. Programs
The Society for Developmental Biology is hosting a webinar for students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in developmental biology or related fields. In this webinar, you will interact with faculty from SDB’s leadership who have a wealth of experience in Ph.D. program admissions, as well as current doctoral students who recently went through the admissions process. This event is designed for current undergraduate students and post-baccalaureates looking to learn more about U.S.-based doctoral programs, the key elements of a compelling graduate school application, and the interview process.

The webinar will be presented by SDB President Victoria Prince (University of Chicago), SDB President-Elect Ken Cho (University of California, Irvine), and 2022 Viktor Hamburger Outstanding Educator Prize recipient Christopher Wright (Vanderbilt University). There will also be a panel discussion, featuring SDB Trainee Representative Madison Martinez (University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center), Choose Development! alumnus Evan Brooks (Cincinnati Children’s Hospital), and Cell Biology Ph.D. Candidate Shannon Dupont (Duke University).

* Required information
The views expressed by our panelists during the webinar are those of the individuals, based on their personal experiences, and not, necessarily, of the SDB. The goal of this session is to share information that will be useful to all graduate school applicants; we are not able to provide individualized mentorship to participants.

The webinar will be recorded and available for a limited time to SDB members. Attendees will not have microphone or camera access during the webinar; written submission of questions may be shared during the Q&A portion of the event.
