A note to interested graduate students:

In order to work as a graduate student in our lab, students must first apply and receive acceptance into a graduate program at the University of Colorado. We cannot admit graduate students directly, but we can accept CU graduate students in Biochemistry, Molecular, Cellular & Developmental Biology (MCDB), Interdisciplinary Quantitative Biology (IQ Biology), or other related programs.

We encourage qualified undergraduates and recent graduates to apply for our home graduate program: CU Biochemistry Graduate Program

Interested trainees should email with CV for consideration.
