The CBL periodically has openings for outstanding postdoctoral fellows. In addition, we participate in several student internship programs sponsored by the Center for Cancer Research, Frederick National Lab, and NIH.

Molecular Discovery Seminar Series
Thursdays at 10:00 am
The Chemical Biology Laboratory (CBL) was established in 2009 as a multidisciplinary laboratory that emphasizes chemical science at the at the interfaces of chemistry, biology and materials science. The CBL conducts basic research central to the discovery of new small molecules, peptides, macromolecules, arrays and materials that impact cancer and AIDS diagnostics and treatment. The CBL evolved from the Laboratory of Medicinal Chemistry (LMC), a lab that had served as the focal point of chemical research within the NCI since 1970, historically steeped in the discovery and optimization of anticancer drugs. The Chemical Biology Lab was formed to expand the role of chemistry in defining and manipulating the biological processes that impact cancer and AIDS with the ultimate goal of translating basic research discoveries into therapies. We are a diverse group of synthetic organic chemists, chemical biologists, materials chemists, analytical chemists, and computational chemists that interact closely to create a collaborative and stimulating research environment. The CBL collaborates extensively with other NCI and broader NIH laboratories as well as academicians to accelerate discovery and translation.

Meet Our People
The Chemical Biology Laboratory boasts a wide variety of expertise stemming from outstanding fellows from diverse backgrounds who join the Lab for a Postbaccalaureate or Postdoctoral Fellowship.
This is just a small sample of our most recent alumni. Over the years, our lab has trained a cadre of outstanding postdoctoral, doctoral and postbaccalaureate fellows. Many have gone on to hold leading positions in the scientific community.
