Students interested in pursuing multidisciplinary research to gain a broad perspective in chemistry and biology are encouraged to apply to the Chemistry-Biology Interface (CBI) PhD program. The CBI Program spans departments in Johns Hopkins University’s schools of Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, and Public Health.
The CBI Program is currently accepting applications for Fall 2017 admission. The application deadline is January 15, 2017.
Selected applicants will be asked to visit Johns Hopkins University for an interview (March 3-4, 2017). The CBI Program will arrange for meetings with faculty and students, and conduct tours of the facilities and community.
To apply to the CBI Program, you will need to submit:
- An online application for the chemical biology PhD
- An unofficial undergraduate transcript
- Statement of purpose
- Three (3) letters of recommendation
- Official GRE scores for the General test
In addition, one of the following subject tests is strongly recommended:
- Cell and Molecular Biology
All transcripts, letters of recommendation, and GRE scores should be received by January 15 to ensure full consideration.
A training grant from the National Institutes of Health provides support for our students during their first year in the graduate program at the Chemistry-Biology Interface. However, the NIH limits this to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.
International students who are interested in applying to this program will be required to demonstrate financial support for their first year of study as part of their application. If an offer of admission is extended to an international student, a deposit of funds covering the first year of tuition and living expenses will be required by the university prior to April 15.
