Students will be part of both, the department of their research supervisor and the MCB program.

As members of the MCB program, students will:

  • organize and participate in a yearly retreat with oral and poster presentations; decide on and invite an external speaker for the retreat
  • participate in monthly, informal lunches with faculty members that cover topics like qualifying exams, writing and submitting grants and manuscripts, how to respond to critiques, career development, etc.
  • present their data once a year in weekly summer meetings
  • contribute to the program by organizing student activities, interacting with applicants, reviewing program travel award applications, and providing feedback on the program
