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 around the US perform 10-weeks of research where they develop their own project, take profession development workshops, network, and explore their host city.
