Our Mission

WVU has a proud history of training graduate students to be successful at the next career level. Outstanding new and established investigators direct relatively small research laboratories populated primarily by graduate students allowing for one-on-one training.

Taken to heart is the following quote by Dr. Bruce Alberts, Editor-in-Chief of Science - “The best research advisors provide their students with enough guidance to prevent them from wasting time on nonproductive pursuits, while giving them the freedom to innovate and to learn from their own mistakes.” (On Becoming a Scientist, Science 326 (13): 916, 2009)
