The University of Iowa offers a special interdisciplinary research training program for pre-doctoral students in Psychology called the Behavioral-Biomedical Interface Training Program (BBIP).
BBIP is supported in part by a National Institutes of Health T32 pre-doctoral research training grant T32GM108540 from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences. The program—Mechanisms of Health and Disease at the Behavioral-Biomedical Interface—aims to teach the next generation of behavioral science researchers how to utilize biomedical methodologies and conceptual frameworks for making breakthroughs in understanding both health and behavior. Students in the program are graduate students in the Department of Psychology at the University of Iowa.
Students admitted to the training program are eligible to apply for funding under the training grant mechanism. Mentors include faculty from the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences and the UI Carver College of Medicine, with Susan Lutgendorf, Ph.D. as director.

Diversity is a fundamental component of the University of Iowa's research and education goals. Diversity among students, faculty and staff provides a richer education for all students, and contributes to a more well-rounded training experience. The Behavioral Biomedical Interface Program works with The Office of Graduate Inclusion to foster an environment where all members of our community feel welcome. The Behavioral Biomedical Interface Program is committed to equal opportunity and diversity including a commitment to students with disabilities and from underrepresented groups.
