The Chemistry-Biology Interface Training Grant is an NIH funded grant that supports top graduate students working at the interface of chemistry and biology. These students work in the laboratories of individual PIs, but they also receive an interdisciplinary training whereby they learn a common language and shared set of research skills.

Prospective Students

Through shared experiences in the classroom and in the laboratory, the Predoctoral Chemistry-Biology Interface (CBI) Training Program at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, aims to provide interdisciplinary training; allowing each team member to learn a common language and acquire a shared set of research skills without compromising their ability to acquire deep discipline-specific knowledge in specialized areas of chemistry or biology.
