Center for Biotechnology Education
The Johns Hopkins University Krieger School of Arts and Sciences created the Center for Biotechnology Education to engage diverse audiences in the world of biotechnology and to prepare the leaders of today, tomorrow, and the next generation for the challenges of the 21st century.
Our goals are to increase public awareness and understanding of biotechnology, to inform educators of the resources and programs available locally and nationally, to become a resource center for biotechnology information, to coordinate training workshops for students and professionals, and to support biotechnology training and education locally, nationally, and internationally.
The Center’s mission is to expand the reach of biotechnology education through graduate education and professional development.
Our graduate programs are designed for working professionals — delivering the rigorous and practical curriculum they need to advance their careers or academic ambitions. Johns Hopkins’ Center for Biotechnology Education programs are rooted in the multidisciplinary skills of basic research, drug discovery technologies, bioinformatics, regulatory affairs, food safety regulation, and product commercialization. The CBE offers eight master’s degrees.
By expanding the scope of biotechnology education, the Center for Biotechnology Education is building a pipeline of students and professionals prepared to achieve success in K-12 education, graduate school, and the work environment in the fields of biotechnology, bioinformatics, regulatory science, and biotechnology enterprise and entrepreneurship.
Orchestrating partnerships with industry and government organizations to provide community outreach, professional development, educational opportunities, workshops, research symposia, and lecture series for academia, industry, and the general public.
