    Student in Bio Lab

    Students can build different skill sets through peer advising, tutoring, and assisting in the preparation and execution of laboratory courses. In addition, our students maintain an active Student Chapter of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

    • I have been interning at New York University Langone Health Center’s Environmental Pediatrics Department to aid in their Children’s Health and Environment Study (CHES). This study is the initial part of the larger NIH-funded Environmental influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) study, which aims to shed light on how environmental exposures during early life can impact long-term child health outcomes.

    • My unique experience at MMC has not only prepared me for coursework at the doctoral level, but also for my patient-care experiences at physical therapy offices and rehabilitation centers. The professors in the Biology department have created a close-knit community, where I was encouraged to take learning into my own hands.
