Herschell Emery, Ph.D., is the bioinformatics program academic adviser. He plays a key role in our students’ academic experience at VCU, assisting them in determining realistic educational goals, planning an ideal curriculum and identifying university programs and resources to help them grow.
Students should check in with the academic adviser each semester prior to course registration to plan their course load as well as make sure they are meeting graduation requirements.
Note that while first-year students are typically advised through the University College, the faculty at the Center for the Study of Biological Complexity wants to interact with our first-year students. We encourage our students to meet with Dr. Emery as soon as possible.
