Affirming Black Lives like George Floyd (Spring, 2020)
The killing of George Floyd was murder. His death has catalyzed world events because of hundreds of years of chronic and pervasive abuse perpetrated against black and brown peoples. It has no place in society and no place here. The Department of MB&B stands against racism and all forms of discrimination.

International students and postdocs in MB&B (Fall, 2016)
Science is a highly international endeavor in which researchers share results and ideas with colleagues and collaborators from all over the world. The progress of science is accelerated by the exposure to new information and diverse views, which seed discoveries. Scientific discovery benefits from the free exchange of ideas and people. The Department of Molecular Biochemistry and Biophysics at Yale University is fortunate to have faculty, graduate students and postdoctoral scholars who come from many different countries, and who embrace a broad range of cultures and religions. We hereby affirm our appreciation of the contributions of our international students and scholars to our research and teaching missions and put forth our continued commitment to welcoming students and scholars regardless of background.
