Dr. David Threadgill (’83, ’89), a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and a leader in genomics, has been recruited as the Director for the WSGI. Equipped with a notable history of developing scholarly teams in highly successful interdisciplinary programs, Threadgill will be tasked with positioning Texas A&M as a global leader in genomics by aligning teams from diverse expertise and disciplines currently located at Texas A&M, and establishing rich collaborations both nationally and internationally. Threadgill will have academic appointments as Professor in the Department of Veterinary Pathobiology in the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, and Professor and holder of the Tom and Jean McMullin Chair of Genetics in the Department of Molecular & Cellular Medicine in the Texas A&M Health Science Center.
