The Chemistry and Molecular Biology graduate programs at USC will launch a NIH T32 training grant program in July 2016. The National Institute of Health-funded Chemistry-Biology Interface training grant is led by Director Susan Forsburg (MCB) and Co-Director Matt Pratt (CHEM). It will support several Chemistry PhD students with fellowships and a unique training in two mentors laboratories. The award timing is excellent, coming in the first year of a new Chemical Biology section in the Chemistry Department and the arrival of the Bridge Institute that involves several of the department's faculty.
