Phone: (415) 514-9790

Location(s): Malaysia; Mexico; Nicaragua

Description

QB3 has research facilities at UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz and UCSF. An academic director heads each campus site. QB3’s director oversees operations as a whole. Regis B. Kelly, PhD serves as overall director, and Nevan Krogan, PhD is the QB3-UCSF director.

QB3 Malaysia Program

The QB3 Malaysia Program helps Malaysia achieve that vision by providing research training to Malaysian graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in the life sciences. These researchers will return to Malaysia and work as a team at the Malaysian Institute of Pharmaceuticals and Nutraceuticals to advance the fast-expanding local drug industry.

The program represents a collaborative effort between QB3 and the Malaysian Institute of Pharmaceuticals and Nutraceuticals, and is part of QB3’s effort to advance global health care.

See the QB3 Malaysia Program’s website for more information.
