Meet our Molecular Biology and Biochemistry Majors and Alumni


Majoring in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry can take you where you want to go!

The MBB Department offers an undergraduate course of study in which traditional and modern biochemistry are integrated with studies in molecular biology. In addition to course work, all MBB majors conduct independent undergraduate research projects in molecular biology and biochemistry. This course of study prepares students for graduate studies in molecular biology and biochemistry and related fields, entry into professional schools in medicine or other health professions, or employment in industries (e.g., biotechnology, pharmaceuticals) in which molecular biology and biochemistry skills are in demand. Many MBB students have had their undergraduate research published in scientific journals and presented their work at national meetings. Recent MBB graduates have gone onto graduate school at Stanford, Harvard, MIT, UCSF, U. Penn., USC, and Rutgers; medical school at UMDNJ, Mt Sinai, U. Penn and Einstein; or obtained research positions at Merck and other companies.
