A Unique Education Opportunity

The Chemistry-Biochemistry-Biology Interface (CBBI) Program at Notre Dame is an NIH-funded program that offers students the opportunity to train in an interdisciplinary environment that provides significant cross-training at the interface of chemistry and biology-related disciplines. CBBI students are offered special research training opportunities by participating in extended internships in industry, government laboratories, other laboratories at Notre Dame, or in other academic institutions. Training is supplemented with external seminar speakers, biweekly meetings in which students present and discuss their research, and an annual symposium.

Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

The CBBI Program is committed to diversity and inclusion. We believe in recruiting and retaining a diverse group of students and training faculty members, including underrepresented minorities and individuals with disabilities to promote excellence in research, scholarship, training, and teaching. We believe in creating an environment that recognizes, addresses, and respects diversity and inclusion that supports the success of our students and faculty. The CBBI Program is committed to ensure that all trainees and faculty receive diversity and inclusion education and training.
