The Vision & Value of MCDB
Recent advances in the life sciences have set the stage for extraordinary new discoveries about the molecular basis of life and for the application of these discoveries to medicine, agriculture and wildlife conservation.
To ensure that important basic research thrives at the UM, MCDB seeks support to create a Laboratory for Biological Imaging. In addition, gifts are needed to provide undergraduates with opportunities for hands-on research, and to encourage diversity in the biological sciences by helping qualified students receive the support they need to become successful scholars and researchers. These initiatives and more will ensure that MCDB remains a leader in the discipline contributing to the field at large. Read more about these major giving opportunities. [pdf]
Chris Psujek helped over 15,000 students during her time in biology with her knowledge, compassion, and patience – a truly incredible legacy. Undergraduates will remember her for her ability to answer just about any question that was thrown at her and graduate students will remember her from the fair and organized way she managed GSI assignments. The faculty relied on her extensively in their role as concentration advisors as well as all administrative aspects of their undergraduate teaching. In her memory, the Program in Biology has established the Christine Psujek Memorial Undergraduate Award. An award will be presented annually to the graduating senior who submits the best honors thesis in any of the biology concentrations. Donations can be made online.
