About the program

The Chemistry and Chemical Biology Graduate Program (CCB) at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) prepares scientists to address problems at the intersection of chemistry and biology by providing a chemical foundation for understanding complex biological processes at an atomic level. UCSF is well suited for this program, not only because of its accomplishments in the field, but because the framework of science and science education at UCSF is intensely interdisciplinary.
