Welcome to the Chemistry Biology Interface (CBI) Pre-doctoral Program at Wayne State University

The principle goal of the WSU CBI program is to provide graduate students with a structured academic community of interdisciplinary faculty and students, along with career building and mentored research, that will enable each student to learn and develop the necessary skills and a professional identity for a successful career in the biomedical sciences.

The CBI program provides cross-disciplinary training to students with diverse interests and enables them to apply the mechanistic and atomistic perspective of chemistry to important biological, health-related problems. The program includes faculty trainers from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the School of Medicine, the Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, and the Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics representing diverse disciplines of synthetic organic and inorganic chemistry, bioanalytical chemistry, bioorganic and bioinorganic chemistry, biochemistry, computational chemistry, mechanistic enzymology, genetics, oncology, neurology, pharmacology, molecular biology, microbiology, cell biology, bioinformatics, and spectroscopy.
