The IBBS represents the basic research effort at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where faculty, fellows, postdocs and students and staff study some of the most exciting problems in biomedical science today.
Any type of research is possible in the IBBS -- in addition to our nine departments, we have several interdisciplinary research programs as well as translational and collaborative research across all basic and clinical departments.
Please join us and learn more about what's going on at the cutting edge of biomedical research.

Developing Cutting Edge Technology:
Technology at the Johns Hopkins IBBS
The Johns Hopkins Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences High Throughput Biology (HiT) Center was founded in 2002 by Jef Boeke and Min Li to conduct basic research, improve high throughput technology and provide services to the greater Johns Hopkins community. Research at this center focuses on the complex interactions that underlie the functions of cells and organisms in health and disease, with an emphasis on innovative tool-building and quantitative systems approaches. Here, Boeke and Li describe the genesis and evolution of the center and look forward to the future.
