Correspond with current MCB and IB Students

MCB Leaders are a small group of accomplished students in MCB who are eager to help current and prospective students learn more about the University of Illinois, the College of LAS and the Molecular and Cellular Biology major. Feel free to email these students for answers to your questions about student life at the University of Illinois.

IB Peer Leaders participate in many types of recruiting and informational events on campus to provide a student voice for Integrative Biology. IB Peer Leaders are pursuing many different career paths but all enjoy talking about the major and helping prospective students better understand what Integrative Biology has to offer.
