Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology fosters a spirit of research-oriented training beginning at the undergraduate level. INBT is dedicated to introducing the next generation of scientists and engineers to the potentials of nanobiotechnology early in their undergraduate careers. This may take the form of workshops, seminars, courses or intensive research experiences on campus, off-campus, or abroad.

INBT believes early involvement in research is an integral part of undergraduate education and critical for future success. The Institute runs two Research for Undergraduate Experience (REU) program, sponsored through the NSF. Undergraduates from all over the US travel to perform 10-weeks of research in INBT-affiliated labs. INBT also supports a summer research internship program at The Inter-University MicroElectronics Centre (IMEC) in Leuven, Belgium. This program is open to both undergraduate and graduate students.
