The Behavioral-Biomedical Interface Program
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 via the National Institute of General Medical Sciences. The program is designed for select students beginning their doctoral studies in Epidemiology, Exercise Science, or Psychology.
Purpose of BBIP:
This interface program aims to prepare behavioral scientists in training to biomedical/biological content and methods so that they will function effectively as members of interdisciplinary research teams.
Theme of BBIP:
The thematic emphasis for BBIP is on health-related research problems that are linked to prevention science, the developmental sciences, or both.
BBIP is for well-prepared doctoral students who are pursuing a research career in the health sciences.
