Three new funded trainees were recently selected for the Chemical Biology Program (CBP) at UC Davis: Calvin Ly (Olson Lab), Andrea Coleman (Ames Lab) and Kori Lay (David Lab).  All three are Ph.D. students in the Department of Chemistry.

The goal of the CBP is to provide cross training at the interface of chemistry and biology for pre-doctoral candidates. Upon completion of the program, students will be prepared for careers in the biomedical workforce where they can effectively communicate and direct research programs that integrate approaches across these two disciplines.

The program is supported by the Department’s first NIH T32 Training Grant and is entering its second year under the direction of Professor Peter Beal. The CBP faculty is currently comprised of 29 trainers with primary appointments in six different departments in five different colleges.
