BBS NIH Funded Training Programs

The BBS Program has numerous specialized NIH Training Programs which support many of our top students. Below we describe a subset of these programs.

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.
The Predoctoral Pharmacology Training Program (PPTP) offers a unique training experience focused in the pharmaceutical sciences. The objectives of the PPTP are to train you 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 students and faculty from multiple 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.
