The Molecular and Cellular Biology concentration emphasizes the intersection of modern research in cellular biology with medicine and society. MCB is ideally suited for students who wish to study molecular and cellular processes at the heart of both normal physiology and disease. MCB concentrators will acquire an understanding of scientific logic and approaches as they explore a wide range of contemporary subjects.
Graduate students in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB) are members of an interdepartmental and interdisciplinary training program called Molecules, Cells, and Organisms (MCO). The program’s mission to advance biological research beyond traditional boundaries is motivated by a passion for discovery and supported by innovative research centers and state-of-the-art facilities. Graduates are trained to be the next generation of life scientists: creative, independent, and productive researchers working in academia, medicine, industry, law, business, or the non-profit sector.
