The Brown University Graduate Program in Molecular Biology, Cell Biology and Biochemistry (MCB) was organized in 1976 to bring together faculty who recognize the emergence of common conceptual and experimental aspects of investigation in experimental and computational biology. MCB is truly an interdisciplinary, interdepartmental Program that offers students of superior ability and motivation excellent preparation for a career that includes research in biological and medical sciences. The Program is designed to provide students with training in research that is tailored specifically to their interests. Entering students may choose from two curricular tracks. The MCB track provides advanced training in cell, developmental, and molecular biology and biochemistry while the FCG track provides advanced training in genetics, genomics and systems biology. The multidepartmental graduate program in Molecular Biology, Cell Biology and Biochemistry (MCB) has held a predoctoral training grant from NIH for more than 29 years.
