Chemistry/Biology Interface

Yale University’s Chemical Biology Training Program draws upon the strengths of several departments to provide interdisciplinary training at the interface of chemistry and biology. Special features of the Chemistry/Biology Interface (CBI) training program include interdepartmental course work and rotation schedule, a monthly in-house seminar program for discussion of recent results, and an annual Chemical Biology Symposium.

The principles of cooperation and collaboration between investigators with diverse expertise and interests are at the heart of Yale’s CBI Graduate Training Program. A friendly, supportive environment, open discussion, shared resources, and multi-lab training are fundamental parts of these studies.

BBS applicants who are interested in Chemical Biology are encouraged to apply to the Molecular Cell Biology, Genetics and Development Track, Biochemistry, Quantitative Biology, Biophysics, and Structural Biology Track or the Translational Molecular Medicine, Pharmacology, and Physiology Track. You should then choose the Chemistry/Biology Interface Training Program from the Special Programs drop down menu. Applicants to the Chemistry Department are also eligible for participation in the CBI Graduate Training Program.
