Degree Requirements

All students are required to have formed a Graduate Supervisory Committee consisting of their Senior Supervisor and at least 2 other members by the end of their first month of enrollment. The Supervisory Committee has the authority to specify an appropriate program of course work meeting or exceeding the minimum requirements stated below.

Students in both programs are required to submit an annual progress report. The progress report consist of an evaluation of the student's progress by the committee, a summary of courses taken and grades achieved, a summary of financial support, and an evaluation done by the student of his/her progress over the last year.

All graduate students are expected to attend our Friday afternoon MBB Research Seminar Series and to regularly participate in a journal club. Journal clubs are discussion groups that focus on the current research literature, and can be in the form of the MBB colloquia, or informal groups consisting of the members of one or more research laboratories.
