The MIT Department of Biology encompasses a remarkable breath of biology within a very close-knit community that places a strong emphasis on graduate training. The first year curriculum provides a solid foundation in biology — the methods and logic course led us through the most rigorous dissection of scientific literature of any reading course I have ever taken. Once in the lab, the resources and collaborations available through MIT provide unparalleled opportunities to accelerate and advance your research.
