What our students have to say...
When I first came to UVM, but halfway through the first semester of my sophomore year, I decided to make the switch to MMG. The decision was between Neuroscience, MMG, and Biochemistry, but after meeting with Doug, I knew MMG would be the perfect fit. My first meeting with my new MMG advisor went above and beyond my expectations; we planned out my course load for the next 2 and a half years, and told me to stop by whenever I was in the building so we could get to know each other better. My junior year, I ended up joining a lab on campus (Dr. Daniel Weiss, Pulmonary Medicine), which was an amazing experience. I made networking connections, and learned valuable laboratory techniques. I joined this lab because both my advisor and Stephanie advised me to do undergraduate research during my time here. After having a subpar first year at UVM, joining the MMG department made my experience a lot better. The MMG faculty and advisors are amazing, and willing to help with any questions that you might have. Overall, I feel extremely prepared for any job that may be in a microbiology or molecular genetics field due to the faculty and courses I took in the MMG department.
