    The MDB program recognizes that pursuing an advanced degree requires intense discipline, commitment and sacrifice, but that it also requires a healthy and happy person with a well-balanced life outside of the lab. The goal of MDB Student Life is to provide prospective students and our student family with the total MDB student experience. Check out the MDB student activates and current events!
