The Wright Lab has a history of training Ph.D. students, Medical Scientists (M.D./Ph.D.) and postdoctoral fellows for successful careers in research, academia, and medicine.

Wright Lab trainees have used a combination of molecular biological, genetic, biochemical and experimental embryological techniques to explore issues of body plan and organ development in frog, mouse and zebrafish embryos. 

Dr. Christopher Wright is the director of the Developmental Biology training grant and corresponding Program in Developmental Biology.
