Introduction to our MMB Community

MMB is a dynamic, interdisciplinary community focused on understanding biochemical, biophysical, and cellular mechanisms at the molecular level. The community seeks to enhance peer learning and faculty mentoring through a series of student work-in-progress presentations. This provides an opportunity for students to extend their breadth of knowledge and community beyond their coursework and thesis laboratories. MMB also facilitates professional development of student members through travel awards and an annual MMB symposium.

Key benefits of participating in MMB include:

  • Feedback on work-in-progress presentations
  • Peer learning with students in similar fields of study
  • Networking with students and faculty from different departments and programs
  • Opportunities for receiving mentoring from faculty and funding for travel
  • Participation in the annual MMB symposium, which attracts attendees from across HMS

The Annual MMB Symposium will be held virtually on June 1, 2020 from 1:30-5:30pm on Zoom. The schedule and link to register can be found here. All are welcome, but pre-registration is required.

Applications are typically accepted from interested students every December. An information session is held each fall prior to the application deadline for prospective students to learn more about the MMB community and the research being performed by current MMB students.
