Program Description:

The program in Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, and Biochemistry (MCB) is for students of exceptional ability and interest who are preparing for a research career in biology or medical science. Admission to the program is open principally to students pursuing the Ph.D. An individual program is designed to meet each student's needs and interests while providing a firm foundation in the broad research areas encompassing cellular, developmental, and molecular biology, and biochemistry. To maintain awareness of current developments in these fields, students and staff participate in frequent research seminars, journal clubs, and colloquia. Because of the importance of written and oral communication to a career in science, graduate students will be encouraged to develop and enhance these essential skills. Students will also acquire teaching experience by assisting in the teaching of courses within the Division of Biology and Medicine.
