Microbial Biology Graduate Program Advising

Dr. Zylstra serves as the academic advisor for all Microbial Biology graduate students. Students should consult the Graduate Student Handbook as a guide to the rules and regulations to obtain the Ph.D. or M.S. degree. First year Ph.D. students take the same courses while the schedule for M.S. students is more flexible. Dr. Zylstra is available if you need advice on what courses to take each year, option elective selection, choosing a research advisor, etc.

Microbial Biology students can ask questions or request an appointment by emailing Dr. Zylstra at zylstra@aesop.rutgers.edu.
