In order to join the CBTP, please send us the following information. We will use the
information to keep you apprised of the activities in the CBTP.

No. You should not register for CHE541. CHE541 and MCB/BSB 520 both qualify as the
first semester course and prerequisite for CHE 542 and CHE543.
In order to be eligible for the CBTP you need to be admitted to a participating graduate
program (CHE, BSB, Pharm, MGM), pursue the
CBTP coursework and rotate in one of the CBTP laboratories.
This training program provides an interfacial curriculum that will train students
in the application of the quantitative and synthetic methods of chemistry to biology.
Trainees are a core component of the Chemical Biology community on campus, which is
centered in the Institute of Chemical Biology & Drug Discovery. The Institute holds
annual symposium in which all CBTP students participate. In addition, trainees will learn how to
communicate their science to the public. Other special activities are held throughout
A co-advisor is a faculty member who adds chemical or biological breadth to your thesis
mentoring. Their duties are intellectual, not financial, just as the rest of your
thesis committee, but someone whose own research expertise is a bit closer to your
project than may always be the case for a thesis committee.
Yes, you would. However, if you are already receiving NIH-training grant support
through the MSTP program, you will not be considered for CBTP fellowships.
All interested students who are members of participating graduate programs (CHE,
BSB, Pharm, MGM) may join the CBTP.
A description of the application process has been posted
here. There are two components.
Identifying your interest to the Program Directors so that we may provide you with
information about activities in Chemical Biology.
Applying for fellowship support.
All interested students who are members of participating graduate programs (CHE, BSB,
Pharm, MGM) may join the CBTP. If a student is pursuing a PhD in a CBTP laboratory,
early May of their first or second year they may apply for a Chemistry-Biology Training
Grant fellowship for funding in their second and/or third year.
The number of slots available for the upcoming 2020-2021 support period is still being
determined. Please contact
