Core Faculty and Staff

The success of the MBP depends upon the collaboration of a diverse team of faculty. MBP instructors create a supportive yet challenging environment for their students, one that engages their cognitive ability while developing interpersonal and relationship-building skills. Each faculty member takes a different approach and offers a different perspective.

Our biotechnology program boasts four dedicated faculty members, specially appointed adjunct faculty, and over eighty affiliated research preceptors from the Feinberg School of Medicine, the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, as well as the McCormick School of Engineering.
