Meet MCB! is an annual open house outreach event, bringing high school students from throughout Arizona into the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology to see our scientific research in action. Students and their teachers tour MCB research labs, learning about their work on cancer, aging and neurodegenerative diseases. They also receive information about applying to the University of Arizona and learn about the MCB major. Our goal is to showcase the excitement of UA Science and give high school students a glimpse of what life is like as an MCB major at the University of Arizona.
Meet MCB! 2017 took place on October 31, with a Halloween theme, and reached over 150 students from Marana, Mesa, Phoenix, Tucson, and Vail. Read about the event in our press release and see the story in the Daily Wildcat. Thank you to the Associated Students of the University of Arizona for their generous support of the 2017 event.
