Travel Stipend

Travel Stipend for Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery Cluster Graduate Students

The Center for Advanced Molecular Innovation and Drug Discovery supports the Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery Cluster through the PhD Program in the Life and Biological Sciences. The cluster provides a multidisciplinary platform for students to learn the fundamental aspects of modern drug discovery and related molecular sciences focused on the modulation of biological systems. Trainees from the life and chemical sciences acquire necessary skills and knowledge in the diverse topical areas related to contemporary drug discovery and integrative chemical biology, while also delving more deeply into their respective disciplinary education and their own area of research interest. The program is flexible and leverages Northwestern’s established and nationally recognized chemical biology and drug discovery training environment and the diverse expertise in the application of molecular sciences to the design and development of small molecules for use in complex biological systems. To augment formal classroom instruction, students are encouraged to participate in CMIDD key activities, including the Annual Drug Discovery Symposium, the Visiting Lecture Series and specialized workshops.

Travel Stipend:

Members of the Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery cluster are eligible to apply for a travel stipend. This stipend will be for cluster students who are attending and presenting at national conferences related to Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery. We will be awarding four stipends in the amount of up to $500 each throughout the 2013-14 fiscal year, which runs from now until August 31, 2014. The form can be downloaded below. For additional information, go to our webpage here.
