BBS NIH Funded Training Programs

The BBS Program has numerous NIH Training Programs which support many of our top students. A subset of these programs are described below.

Yale's Chemical Biology Training Program offers BBS students specialized training at the interface of biology and chemistry.
The Medical Research Scholars Program bridges barriers between traditional predoctoral and medical training by providing both medically oriented coursework and a mentored clinical experience to select BBS students.
Students who are accepted into the Predoctoral Pharmacology Training Program (PPTP) will be offered a unique training experience focused in the pharmaceutical sciences. The objectives of the PPTP are to train graduate students for a research career in academia, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, or government research agencies in the general area of pharmacology.
The Training Program in Genetics integrates PhD students and faculty spanning several Yale Departments - primarily Genetics, MCDB, and EEB - who leverage genetics concepts and techniques in their research.
Yale University, with close proximity and teamwork among scientists, clinician-scientists, and clinicians, provides a rich environment for fundamental and translational cancer research. Yale is home to the Yale Cancer Center, designated as a US National Cancer Institute Comprehensive Cancer Center.
