Introduction to our MMB community

The MMB program is a dynamic, interdisciplinary community focused on understanding biochemical and biophysical mechanisms at the molecular level. The program 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 the classroom and thesis laboratory. The program also facilitates professional development of student members through travel awards.

Key benefits of the program include:

  • Feedback on work-in-progress presentations
  • Peer learning with students in similar fields of study
  • Networking with students and faculty from different departments/graduate programs
  • Opportunities for receiving mentoring and funding

Applications for the MMB program are accepted every November from interested G1, G2, and G3 students. An information session is held each fall prior to the application deadline.
