Valerie Greger

Valerie Greger, PhD, has an extensive background in human genetics, molecular biology, and bioinformatics. She has held positions in both academia and the pharmaceutical industry. Working on the interface between life science and informatics has proven to be a very rewarding experience and motivated her to teach in the Bioinformatics Program at GPS.
