Progam

The academic program for the first year includes three laboratory rotations as well as a core curriculum designed to provide students with a foundation for understanding and conducting research in experimental biology. All students take the four core courses during the first two quarters of the first year, and in the third quarter they choose a sequence of three intensive 2-week minicourses.
