The University of South Carolina offers a special interdisciplinary research training program called the Behavioral-Biomedical Interface Program (BBIP). BBIP is supported in part by a National Institutes of Health T32 pre-doctoral research training grant 5T32GM081740 from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences. The program is designed for select students beginning their doctoral studies in Epidemiology, Exercise Science, or Psychology. Prevention and developmental sciences provide cross-cutting themes for BBIP. BBIP is training the next generation of behavioral scientists with respect to biomedical conceptual frameworks and methods applied to understanding, treating, and preventing adverse health conditions/disorders and promoting optimal health outcomes.
