Welcome to MCDB!
The Section of Molecular Cell and Developmental Biology (MCDB) is one of four units in the School of Biological Sciences. Other Sections are Integrative Biology, Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, and Neurobiology.
MCDB faculty head research groups studying fundamental biological processes using modern tools of genetics, biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, and developmental biology.
Students and postdocs from around the world work with MCDB faculty. Graduate students enter through one of several graduate programs, and postdocs are recruited by individual labs. Many undergraduate students work on research projects in MCDB labs. Research training is enhanced by variety of journal clubs, inter lab research meetings and seminars.
