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 pilots innovative, directed K-12 outreach programs that are designed to address STEM pipeline inequities through transformative means.Â Our programs are intensive collaborations with innovative scientists and engineers as well as with groundbreaking STEMÂ educators and researchers. Programs are intended to be formed and implemented through the IBB and then sustained through university, community, and corporate partners.
