2013 CBIP Fellows: Jiun-Le Shih, Haoqing Chen, Yue Li, Zhiling Zhu, Lu Yang
2014 CBIP Fellows: Te-Wei Tsai, Thien Trong, Amin Shakiba, Chalada Suebsuwong, Yongkai Huang, Yuyu Long
The College of Pharmacy has joined the CBIP program! They will contribute a list of courses. For Chemistry students, they can select at least two courses from this list and/or the list of biochemistry and biology courses to fulfill the requirement.
We will redesign the current CBIP website to facilitate its update. Check back in a few weeks for updated contents including list of CBIP seminars!
