Collaborative Community

"As someone coming from a chemistry background into a Biochemistry lab, I found that my mentor and the other students in the program were incredibly helpful in teaching me new techniques and helping me think more as a biologist." -- Elizabeth Bowling


Our most essential strength is a community of highly collaborative scientists that are focused on the success of our science and our students.

A unique aspect of our program is the level of student involvement in leadership and governance. Students have a voice at nearly every level of the program and organize seminars and career symposia. Correspondingly, there is a strong emphasis on effective mentorship and teamwork to enable your success now and in the future.
