MDB Student Life

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.
