Gary Stormo, Ph.D.
Professor of Genetics
Dr. Stormo and his wife have been faculty members at WUSM for 14 years and prior to that, faculty members at another university. They have raised two children while both being full-time faculty. He believes it is valuable for both partners to have flexible schedules, which is one advantage of faculty positions, so that work can be done while sharing and/or alternating family responsibilities. They were able to find good preschool daycare, and after school programs for the kids have also been very helpful in maintaining work-life balance.
