MPB Graduate Student Association

The Molecular Physiology and Biophysics Graduate Student Associate (MPB GSA) exists to foster a supportive community for the students enrolled in our department. We also strive to increase interaction and communication between students, post-docs, faculty, and staff in order to form a more productive working environment. Our biggest events include annual lab relay race, department Halloween party complete with costume contest, and hosting a student-invited speaker. We host periodic happy hours to bring our students together as well. The GSA works with our wonderful Director of Graduate Studies (DGS), Alyssa Hasty, to organize seminars that keep students informed about resources available to them, how to search for post-doctoral positions, and much more. Rotation students are also able to interact with the GSA during lunches to discuss the departmental requirements and what to expect if they were to join the department.
