2016 Opportunity Awards

Congratulations to the winners of this year's CCBS Opportunity Awards competition based on the theme of Mechanisms of Disease! Each winning proposal will receive $10,000 to be shared between the faculty for lab project expenses; and a $1,000 award for research supplies to be shared between student and/or postdoctoral participants. We look forward to hearing about the projects at next year's annual CCBS retreat scheduled for March 31 - April 2nd, 2017, due to be held in Pasadena, CA!
