Rice University's IBB is located in the BioScience Research Collaborative. The IBB seeks to promote interdisciplinary research and education, foster ties with the Texas Medical Center, create partnerships with industry, promote the translation of research, and facilitate strong research and training programs.
The Hamill Innovation Awards (supported by the Hamill Foundation), are one of several awards given by the IBB. Hamill Innovation Awards have funded initiation of new collaborative research by the IBB faculty, thereby allowing faculty to explore risky new areas of research that might not otherwise receive funding and collect the preliminary data necessary to publish their work or win increasingly competitive awards from federal agencies. Recipients have been able to leverage their initial research to attain additional prestigious grants to make even further significant discoveries.
The IBB currently administers two graduate research programs: the PhD Program in Systems, Synthetic, and Physical Biology, and the NIH T32 Fellowship. The four undergraduate summer internships offered by the IBB are the AHA SCRIP, BUILDing Scholars, NSF REU in BioNetworks and BioXFEL Summer Internship. The Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) course (UNIV 594) is also provided by the IBB.
As part of the IBB's new Distinguished Innovator Series, Jack Gill recently presented a special lecture entitled "How Silicon Valley Ideas Can Propel the Houston Innovation Eco-System." The event was designed as a means for faculty and students to discuss Rice's role in the future of research, innovation, entrepreneurship and the Midtown Innovation District project.
