Molecular, Cellular & Developmental Biology Graduate Program
Our interdisciplinary program provides students with a large number of potential research projects. New students participate in lab rotations to sample the interests, approaches, and styles of three different laboratories. This allows students to make well-informed decisions about what area of research to pursue and which laboratory to join. Students in the program may graduate with a Ph.D. in Molecular, Cellular & Developmental Biology, Genetics, or Plant Sciences.
