Nicole Chaffee, Chemistry graduate student


Nicole, a California native, is the first person in her family to attend college. She attended the University of California, Davis where she obtained a bachelor’s of science degree in Biochemistry in 2010. Her master’s research in biochemistry at SF State focused on the isolation, purification and identification of chemotherapeutics derived from marine bacteria.

Update: In 2012, Nicole began her doctoral studies at U.C. Davis in chemistry, with an emphasis on pharmacological compound identification and their applications. Congratulations Nicole!
