Faculty

We are excited to announce that Dr. Rebecca Page and Dr. Wolfgang Peti are relocating their research labs from Brown University to CBC@UA! this coming January to begin their new faculty positions as Professors of Chemistry & Biochemistry in the College of Medicine and the College of Science at The University of Arizona. Rebecca has been named the inaugural Donna B. Cosulich Faculty Fellow, which is supported by a CBC endowment received in 2012 from the Cosulich estate. Wolfgang will become the third CBC faculty member to hold the Homer C. and Emily Davis Weed Endowed Chair.

Research

The Charest lab investigates the molecular mechanisms implicated in the intracellular transduction of chemoattractant signals that guide the migration of cells, a process crucial to normal physiology but also involved in diseases such as cancer metastasis.

Students

Michael Manchester, a Tucson native and a senior majoring in Chemistry, recently was awarded a scholarship from the Arizona Society for Coatings Technology for his work on sulfur materials as prospects for thin film coating applications.
