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 PhD program; only students from the Five College consortium are eligible to apply for the fast-track MS degree program.
