The Chemistry-Biology Interface (CBI) Program is an NIH funded predoctoral training program which has been at the University of Delaware for 25 years. Become part of a cross-campus community of over 70 faculty and student scientists exploring emerging research trends in biology, chemistry and engineering. A flexible curricular design allows students in the CBI program to gain an inter-disciplinary education while obtaining a solid foundation in Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry, or Chemical Engineering. Students conduct intensive laboratory rotations selected from 44 labs in 8 different academic units across campus at the beginning of their graduate careers. These rotations allow students to broaden their research experience and scientific network. In addition, the CBI program features a special weekly seminar series with research talks and discussions by students, faculty and guest speakers on topics at the interface between chemistry and biology. If accepted, funding is provided to most students for their first year in the program, with possibility of a second year.
First year graduate students admitted to one of the three doctoral programs (CBC, CBE, BIOL), as well as current second and third year students in these programs, are eligible for CBI.
