CBI Graduate Program at Johns Hopkins University

We are seeking prospective students for the Chemistry-Biology Interface (CBI) Graduate Program at Johns Hopkins University. The CBI Program provides students with research and academic training that enables them to carry out interdisciplinary research as independent scientists. Students completing the program receive a Ph.D. in Chemical Biology.

 The CBI Program brings together 28 faculty from the Schools of Arts & Sciences, Engineering, Public Health and Medicine at Johns Hopkins University and providea diverse selection of research projects for CBI students. In order to assist them in choosing a research advisor, first year graduate students are supported by a NIH Chemical Biology Training Grant. During this time the CBI students carry out three 10-week research rotations that enable them to broaden their research skills and make informed choices of research advisors.

 Since its establishment in 2005, the CBI Program has received an enthusiastic response, and we have attracted an excellent group of students. Our program has grown to over 35 Ph.D. students. You may also browse the CBI website which describes many facets of the program at pamphlet describing the CBI Program is available on our website
