Alumni Achievements

From industry to the academy, UMBC’s Biological Sciences alumni are making their mark on a regional and national level. Our focus on providing opportunities for undergraduate students includes the department’s Minority Access to Research Careers Undergraduate Training in Academic Research (MARC U*STAR) Program. Alumni of our bachelor’s programs consistently go on to some of the most selective graduate programs in the biological sciences, including Harvard University, the University of Wisconsin and Stanford University.  Read the accomplishments of our alumni who have gone on to pursue careers in biological research and medicine.

Alumni of our graduate programs are participating in postdoctoral training in laboratories across the country and are moving into careers in academia and research. The intensive training they receive at UMBC in close collaboration with our dedicated research faculty instills the skills necessary for them to continue to grow as scientists.

Some of our alumni have also used their education in the biological sciences to pursue careers outside of research and medicine.  Read their reflections on how their education at UMBC helped them succeed.
