Welcome to the Tri-Institutional Training Program in Chemical Biology. Our program is now entering its 13th year of training future scientists to pursue research at the interface of chemistry and biology.
There has never been a more exciting time for these combined disciplines. With the unraveling of genomes, a deepening understanding of human diseases, and the increased ability to manipulate and control biological systems, the need for chemical tools, approaches and chemical thinking is greater than ever. Chemistry is the natural language of biology and rich new scientific questions poised at the interface of these disciplines are constantly arising. Many of these problems increasingly require cross-disciplinary approaches with expertise in both chemistry and biomedical sciences and the goal of our program is to prepare scientists to meet these challenges.
The Weill Cornell/Rockefeller/Sloan-Kettering Tri-Institutional Training Program in Chemical Biology comprises combined faculty from The Rockefeller University (RU), the Sloan-Kettering Institute (SKI), the research arm of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), and the Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC). These world-renowned institutions are physically located in immediate proximity to each other on the upper east side of Manhattan in New York City. The faculty in the program spans many of the traditional chemistry sub-disciplines, from synthetic organic, bio-organic, analytical to biophysical chemistry, but all do so within the context of a biomedical research environment. The combination of faculty and resources from the three campuses offers students in the program a wide range of topics and research problems to pursue.
If you choose to come to our program you will receive training that melds the diverse scientific cultures and approaches of both chemistry and biomedical research and be exposed to a wide range of cutting edge research problems.
If these possibilities appeal to you, please explore our web site to learn more about us or apply online.
