2018 Opportunity Awards

Congratulations to the winners of this year's CCBS Opportunity Awards competition based on the theme of Cell States and Transitions! 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 March 29 - 31, 2019 at the Sheraton Universal in Los Angeles!
