Lindsey Martin, PhD
Lindsey Martin, PhD is responsible for managing the administrative and academic affairs of the MSTP and serves as co-director of the MSTP Grand Rounds and College Curriculum courses. She holds an open-door advising policy and serves as an advocate for MSTP students throughout all stages of training.
Dr. Martin brings to the program her expertise in academic administration and career advising for students in the biomedical sciences. She is a trained facilitator for the “Entering Mentoring” curriculum developed by the Center for Improvement of Mentored Experiences in Research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She has facilitated numerous mentoring workshops at Northwestern for graduate students and postdoctoral trainees in the biomedical sciences and draws upon this training to advise MSTP students experiencing issues with mentors and mentees. She is also a facilitator for the "Becoming a Resilient Scientist" series developed by the NIH Office of Intramural Training and Education. She partners with the Driskill Life Sciences Graduate Program to provide this training to MSTP students every summer.
She received a PhD in Russian history from Stanford University and completed postdoctoral training at the University of Chicago. She uses this background in the humanities and social sciences to help graduate students develop skills and competencies not traditionally emphasized through training in the biomedical sciences and to advocate for physician-scientist trainees who wish to complete their doctoral training in these fields.
