MCB will begin supporting professional development for MCB doctoral students with the Domestic Travel Award beginning Spring 2018. This award is intended to enable doctoral students to pursue a professional development opporrunity (e.g. Cold Spring Harbor, Woods Hole, etc.), or to attend a student's first scientific meeting/conference. MCB will award up to $1,000 for travel costs. This award is for domestic travel only--there is a separate award for international travel.
