At present, MCDB has 46 faculty members with a plan for further faculty additions in the next five years. We have a well-balanced complement of junior and senior faculty providing an environment that is both nurturing and energizing for our faculty.
Our diverse research and teaching initiatives allow for strong alliances and collaboration with other UM units and frequently
result in joint appointments for our faculty. Some of these departments/units are: Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Ophthalmology, Biochemistry, and the Life Sciences Institute.
Academic life is exciting as research programs grow, new knowledge is obtained, teaching strategies are enhanced and contributions are made to the mission of the MCDB department, the College of Literature, Science and Arts and the University of Michigan.
