CCBM Fellows

CCBM Fellows should ideally have the in-depth disciplinary knowledge as well as the versatility needed to cross disciplinary boundaries and the ability to do team science in an interdisciplinary environment. The following training requirements were put together with the intention of giving all CCBM fellows a common grounding in basic techniques and skills from multiple disciplines that are important in the biophysical sciences, biomaterials and biotechnology.
