Collaborative Specializations and Interdepartmental Programs
The research groups directed by the faculty are engaged in the pursuit of fundamental and applied research questions involving diverse biological systems (plants, humans and other animals, prokaryotic and eukaryotic microbes). In general, they follow lines of scientific inquiry at the level of molecules to cells.
A collaborative specialization is an intra-university graduate field of study that provides an additional multidisciplinary experience for students enrolled in and completing the degree requirements for their MSC.MCB or PHD.MCB program.
- Neuroscience (MSC.MCB+NEUR) or (PHD.MCB+NEUR)
- One Health (MSC.MCB+ONEH) or (PHD.MCB+ONEH)
- Toxicology (MSC.MCB+TOX) or (PHD.MCB+TOX)
Coursework requirements for collaborative specializations, are no longer in addition to the coursework requirements for the MCB graduate programs (as of May 2021).
Faculty in Molecular and Cellular Biology also participate in the following:
