Graduate students in the PB Program represent a diverse range of interests, linked by their passion for plants. The graduate students form a tight knit group that are part of a broader community of approximately 150 graduate students training in three other interdepartmental graduate programs at the University: Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB); Neuroscience and Behavior (NSB); and Organismic and Evolutionary Biology (OEB). PB graduate students also interact with the 24 postdoctoral fellows and visiting scientists that are associated with PB faculty labs.
