NIBR
POSTDOCTORAL PROGRAM

Research

Our longstanding commitment to understanding the underlying molecular basis of disease not only deepens our knowledge of the biology, it enables us to turn scientific insights into medical breakthroughs. Research at NIBR comprises a broad range of areas from which postdoctoral scholars and their mentors create research projects. Ideally, these projects take advantage of the rich and unique drug discovery environment, including access to sophisticated research tools. Projects are often interdisciplinary in nature, combining biology and chemistry and/or computational approaches, or bridging different disease areas.
