Alicia selected to the NIH Chemical-Biology Interface training program
Updated: Feb 7, 2021
Alicia will continue for a second year in the NIH-funded Chemical-Biology Interface training program at Cornell
Congratulations to Alicia Aquino who was selected for a second year of support from the Cornell Chemical-Biology Interface (CBI) Training Program! Alicia's thesis project seeks to develop a microfluidic platform for precise and flexible control over glycosylation to produce therapeutically relevant N-linked glycoproteins. She becomes the third DLRG member to be honored with selection to the CBI program, with Alyse Portnoff and Emily Cox being the previous trainees. The CBI is an NIH-funded T32 Training Grant at Cornell and is in its twentieth year of operation. The primary goal of this program is to train graduate students with the core principles and techniques of chemistry so that they can address the most current and important problems in biology and medicine. Trainees are expected to develop as researchers who can apply the tools of chemistry to surmount challenges in biological research and combat disease at the molecular level.
