Our Program

The Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB) Program
provides graduate training in virtually all aspects
of biological sciences. The program serves as an
umbrella program that builds close ties among its
~100 faculty members in various departments,
fostering a collaborative environment that
encourages interdisciplinary research.

Research falls broadly into three areas based on
faculty interests — Biological Chemistry and
Molecular Biophysics, Cellular and Developmental
Biology, and Biomedicine. In many cases, faculty
research overlaps these interdisciplinary areas.

Most students admitted to the MCB program have
obtained a bachelor’s degree in basic sciences
(biology, chemistry, biochemistry, physics or
mathematics). Students interested in a career
in life-sciences research in various aspects of
biomedicine are encouraged to apply. All
qualified applicants may apply to the Ph.D.
program; only students from the Five College
consortium are eligible to apply for the
fast-track M.S. degree program.
