Current Graduate Students
Please visit the Resources section for useful links and forms.
Biology graduate students have many opportunities to interact with each other, with faculty, and with visiting scientists during regular seminar series in a number of different disciplines.
- CM/MCBB Student Seminars
- Biomolecular Seminars
- Program in Neuroscience
- Ecology, Behavior & Evolution
- Marine Biology
- Chemical Biology Seminar Series
A variety of events for graduate students are offered by the Biology Graduate Student Association and Women in Biology. Both organizations host outside speakers, professional development events, and social gatherings.
Kellen Andrilenas works with Dr. Trevor Siggers researching the innate immune system and inflammation from a systems biology perspective. Dr. Siggers is a faculty member in the Cell and Molecular program.
Allison Gill works with Dr. Adrien Finzi in the area of the role of plant-microbial interactions in community ecology and ecosystem function. Allison is in the graduate program in Ecology, Behavior, & Evolution program.
Steve Decina's research is focused on understand the way that plants and soil regulate the biogeochemical nutrient cycles of nitrogen and carbon, and how those cycles are themselves coupled and influence one another. He works with Dr. Pamela Templer and is a part of the graduate Ecology, Behavior, & Evolution program.
Nelsa Estrella is investigating the distinct roles of the MEF2 family of transcription factors, and their roles in muscle development, disease, and regeneration.. She works in Dr. Frank Naya's lab and is a part of the graduate Cell and Molecular Biology program.
Liz McCarthy has been studying the role of the main and accessory olfactory systems in pheromone detection and the display of courtship behaviors in adult mice. She works with Dr. Michael Baum as a part of the graduate Neurobiology program.
