Final Progress Reports
The UCSD Superfund Basic Research Program supports a very active graduate training program. At the present time, monies coming from the UCSD SBRP are supporting 11 graduate students, and these students come from across the campus and are represented in several different graduate programs. Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program; Jessica Bonzo, Ryan Holzer, Daniel Machemer, Melissa Passino and Theresa Operaña. Biochemistry Graduate Program; Colette Dooley and Devin Drew. Scripps Institute of Oceanography Graduate Program; Greg Dick. Biology Graduate Program; Alice Chen, Nan Tang and David Waner. Coming from diverse research backgrounds, the students integrate their interests by attending the monthly Program Meetings in addition to meeting once every two weeks as a group to discuss research interests. Several of these students will be obtaining their advanced degrees in 2005. The first graduate of the program, Dr. David Lee, is now employed by the EPA in Washington, DC.
