Chemical Biology

Thirteen faculty members in the department of Molecular Biosciences serve as mentors on the NIH funded Dynamic Aspects of Chemical Biology Training Grant, which includes participants from the Chemistry department in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the departments of Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Chemistry in the College of Pharmacy.  The central goal of this program is for trainees to gain a core fundamental knowledge of the concepts in modern molecular and cellular biology with those of synthetic, biophysical, bio-analytical, medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry, as well as the corresponding experimental techniques in each sub-discipline.
