Elizabeth Salm, PhD is the Associate Director for Postdoctoral Development and Training Grant Support for Biomedical Graduate Education (BGE) at Georgetown University. Dr. Salm directs programming around career and personal development for PhD students and postdoctoral fellows. She also maintains the Training Grant Support portfolio for the current and future federal training grants at BGE.

She graduated from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities with a B.S in Neuroscience. Her interest in the support of research trainees began during her PhD training in the Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program (INP) at Yale University.

While serving as Chair of the Yale Graduate Student Assembly, she observed the daily lives and outcomes of other graduate students across the university and saw many opportunities for improvement. Dr. Salm decided to address these interests in INP by developing a mentoring program to ease the transition of incoming students to graduate school and to support them in their exploration of future careers.

Dr. Salm looks forward to helping PhD students and postdoctoral fellows at Georgetown determine and achieve their personal and professional goals.
