At The Johns Hopkins University, our nation's first Research University, there is a long tradition of scientists carrying out research at the interface of Chemistry and Biology. The establishment of the Chemistry-Biology Interface (CBI) program in 2005 formalized this tradition. We are pleased to invite you to explore this website to learn about our program.
