Faculty Research - Molecular Biology and Biological Chemistry

 

 

  

With more than 180 participating faculty, students have a variety of lab rotation choices in their first year of graduate study. Lab rotations are essential for identifying the appropriate thesis mentor and lab. In addition, lab rotations expose students to a wide variety of research areas and experimental techniques, and enable students to develop a network of research contacts.

Highlights from some of our faculty can be found here: Pioneering the Future
