T32 Training Program

Become an Interdisciplinary Biomedical Researcher

The Chemistry of Life Processes Predoctoral Training Program, a Chemistry:Biology Interface Program of the National Institute for General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), integrates biology and chemistry through a common set of course requirements, a hands-on team based approach to laboratory training, a unique preceptor arrangement, and a strong communal training environment.

The training program educates the next generation of transdisciplinary scientists that will be capable of extending and integrating the perspectives and approaches of the life sciences and chemistry to complex scientific problems in the field of biomedical research.

The training program prepares students for a broad range of careers that span academic, industry, government and private sectors.

CLP Training Program

Our NIH-funded graduate training program requires two mentors, one from chemistry and one from biology, to help them master the divergent languages of drug discovery, and we’ve designed special courses that emphasize skills development, rigor, reproducibility, and hands-on training across a broad spectrum of instruments and methods. The Institute also provides education and career opportunities for outstanding undergraduates to help guide their development as future scientific leaders.
