Short answer: Probably "yes, it's possible."

If you can export the mdb file in a predictable format, such as a CSV file, you can import the CSV into a MySQL database.  This can be done with PHP or perhaps with a tool like phpMyAdmin.

In addition to Ray Paseur's solution, you can also use third party tool like Access To MySQL to transfer your data.
