The Thomas C. Alber Science & Engineering for Global Health Fellowship

The Thomas C. Alber Science & Engineering for Global Health Fellowship is named after Dr. Tom Alber, Professor of Molecular and Cell Biology and founding Faculty Director of CEND. Dr. Alber believed that scientists from across the UC Berkeley campus have the potential to make an impact on our understanding of diseases that disproportionately affect the world's poor as evidenced by his own contributions to the tuberculosis and HIV fields in his career as a structural biologist.
