PhD Training Programs

Integrative Bioinformatics for Investigating and Engineering Microbiomes (IBIEM)

IBIEM is an interdisciplinary graduate training program between Duke and North Carolina A&T State University which brings together scientists with interests in microbiome research.

The educational model of IBIEM transcends communication barriers between disciplines and promotes team science. PhD students in microbiology, engineering and other empirical sciences are cross-trained with theorists, model builders and computational scientists.

IBIEM trainees are exposed to and develop a range of skills as well as be engaged with the community through outreach activities aimed at promoting science and engineering to the public.
