  • What our students have to say...

    I began my time at UVM as a major in biological sciences and moving to the department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics was the best decision I made. No other department at this university features such comprehensive and engaging laboratory experiences. The MMG faculty is distinguished in their fields and always available to advise students. Larger science programs at UVM simply do not offer the opportunities offered by the MMG department.
