The small number of students in the MBB major allows the department to closely monitor the progress of each student in the major and provide individual advice to help them through their undergraduate education and onto their chosen career path.
It is recommended that prospective students register for the MBB major by declaring for MBB on the MyMajor website portal and by meeting with the Undergraduate Chair,
Once a student is accepted into the major they should periodically meet with the Undergraduate Chair to go over their progress and answer any questions. To register for independent research courses, students must fill out a one-page research form each semester. which provides the Undergraduate Chair the opportunity to monitor how well the students are progressing through their course work and research.
Research mentoring. Each MBB student has a research mentor - always the P.I. and in some cases a senior scientist - in the laboratory they are performing their independent research projects. It is highly recommended that students meet with these mentors once a week to discuss their research results and progress. The research mentors are also able to advise students on opportunities to help them in their career paths and goals.
Prospective or current MBB student are always encouraged to contact or meet with the Undergraduate Director,
