Molecular and Cell Biology Graduate Admissions Pathways

The Molecular and Cell Biology Graduate Admission Pathways (MCBGAP) program is a partnership that provides undergraduates from

  • the University of Maryland Eastern Shore
  • Xavier University of Louisiana
  • Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University

with summer research at UC Davis and joint mentoring by faculty from both UC Davis and the home institution.

The MCBGAP program takes a comprehensive approach to student intellectual development through seminars, video conferences, site visits, and mentoring to prepare students for summer research at UC Davis and competitive applications to graduate programs in molecular and cell biology.

For more information about the MCBGAP program, browse these pages or contact Academic Coordinator Carole Hom (clhom at ucdavis dot edu).
