Caleb C. McKinney, PhD is the Assistant Dean of Graduate and Postdoctoral Training and Development for Biomedical Graduate Education at Georgetown University Medical Center. As a certified career advisor and current Diversity Officer for the National Postdoctoral Association leadership team, Dr. McKinney is committed to biomedical graduate student and research trainee advocacy and development. Caleb graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. in Biology and a minor in Applied Economics and Management. He then completed his PhD in microbiology from New York University. During his postdoctoral fellowship at the National Institutes of Health, he mentored junior trainees in the lab, participated on several training committees, and managed a cadre of professional development programs for research trainees through the NIAID Office of Training and Diversity.

At Georgetown, Dr. McKinney develops career exploration and professional leadership training programs as well as provides individualized career-related assistance to BGE students and GUMC postdocs who are seeking a wide range of biomedical careers. He hopes to help students and postdocs develop positive outlooks and professional strategies that align with their individual experiences, passions and goals. Caleb believes in taking great care of yourself so that you can continue to do what you love. Outside of work, he is a huge advocate of wellness and physical fitness. He loves to exercise and develop new healthy recipes. Though he may have left the lab bench, his scientific creativity continues to pour out in the kitchen!
