Welcome to MCBB

As Director, I welcome you to the interdepartmental graduate program in Molecular Biology, Cell Biology & Biochemistry (MCBB), which offers both PhD and MA degrees. The MCBB Program provides students with a strong foundation in several current scientific fields, all focussed on molecular sciences. Trainees are exposed to modern molecular-based science via coursework, seminars, and, most importantly, world-class research. The MCBB Program prepares students for research and/or teaching positions in academia, industry, or government. The Program is based on an interdisciplinary environment and a breadth of approaches and biological interests, and the Program includes faculty members from multiple departments: Biology, Chemistry, Biomedical Engineering, Health Sciences, and Physics.
