The QCB training program benefits from strong trainee-run leadership provided by two QCB ambassadors appointed to serve a one calendar-year term.  Current (2020) ambassadors are Rachel Fadler (Flood group) and Liam Scott (Dragnea group).

Our QCB ambassadors work with the entire current and previously supported trainee cohort to host a number of events designed to showcase QCB trainer laboratory research accomplishments while providing professional development and networking opportunities for all trainees.

Career Development Opportunities

QCB Trainees also have access to numerous career development activities including the IU Chemistry Career Development Symposium (CDS) that provides opportunities for trainees to meet professionals in the fields of patent law the pharmaceutical industry, the chemical industry, as well as academic scientists from small colleges in R1 institutions. The CDS is organized by the Chemistry Graduate Representative Committee (ChemGRC).
