The Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB) program welcomed 26 new students this fall term, and we extend our congratulations to the 18 students who received their PhDs this year.
Jamie Moseley, PhD, has joined the faculty in the Department of Biochemistry and is a member of the MCB faculty. We quickly solicited his help to redesign our MCB website. Our department recognizes the importance of web visibility, and intends to use the resource to project our research opportunities to students and faculty across the globe. We feel that our new website will attract more students and boost our recruiting efforts.
Christen DiPetrillo, of biological sciences, and Michael Molloy of microbiology/immunology, were selected as Copenhaver Fellows this year. Maria Hindt of biochemistry received a 2010 NSF Fellowship, and first-year MCB student David Tobin received a GK-12 Fellowship for Teaching from the NSF.
This past fall, MCB initiated an outreach program with visits to several New England colleges. Faculty and students visited colleges to present research seminars and talk with undergraduates about Dartmouth and the MCB program. Next year, we will expand the program to colleges in other parts of the United States.
