Welcome to the Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB) at Kennesaw State University (KSU) in Kennesaw, Georgia. I am delighted to be Interim Chair of a great department with a dedicated staff and a distinguished faculty. Our diverse and welcoming culture make us an intellectual hub within the University and the greater Atlanta community. Together with our students we are working to grow our reputation and become even better at research and teaching. We take our commitment to serve our community seriously, and our department is actively engaged in our students’ success.

We invite you to explore our Department Research Areas for more information about specific research topics and our Faculty and Staff directory for more information about our faculty. Feel free to come visit us on the Kennesaw campus where you can to learn more about the opportunities in MCB available to you at KSU.
