The Chemical and Structural Biology (CSB) Training Program at UC Irvine was founded in 2014 by founding directors Dr. Thomas Poulos of the Departments of Chemistry, Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, and Pharmaceutical Sciences, and Dr. Douglas Tobias of the Department of Chemistry. The CSB Training Program, jointly funded by a T32 training grant from the National Institute of General Medicinal Sciences at the NIH and the UCI Graduate Division, provides fellowships to predoctoral graduate students who are in the fields of chemical or structural biology with an emphasis on interdisciplinary research.
Fellows supported by the CSB Training Program receive in depth training and exposure to a number of different fields from world renowned experts at UC Irvine in the forms of collaborations, classes, journal clubs and more.
