Department News

Below are articles from various sources about members of MCB and their research.

Think the summer is quiet at UC Berkeley? Not for the undergraduates gaining hands-on research experience in campus labs through the National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (NSF REU) program. In partnership with the NSF REU, each summer, MCB hosts undergraduates from across the nation to gain laboratory experience and conduct cutting-edge research in MCB labs. For ten weeks, REU scholars are integrated members of MCB labs, where they receive mentorship from graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and faculty PIs.
