Welcome to the Vanderbilt Institute of Chemical Biology. The VICB is a trans-institutional initiative between the College of Arts and Science and the School of Medicine. The Institute's mission is to provide research and training in the application of chemical approaches to the solution of important biomedical problems. The proximity of the Chemistry Department and the School of Medicine facilitates this process. Our members represent a range of research interests and technologies with particular strengths in analytical methodology and molecular imaging, cellular responses to chemical stress, small molecule discovery, enzyme and receptor chemistry, proteomics, structural biology, and chemical synthesis.

The VICB provides a fertile ground for graduate education. Three parallel tracks exist for training students in VICB laboratories: the Chemistry Department Graduate Program, the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program, and the Chemical and Physical Biology Graduate Program. Each of these programs provides a different environment for graduate training suited to the needs and interests of the individual student. An active seminar program supplements formal classroom training. The VICB provides fellowships and salary supplements to outstanding applicants. All applicants to each of the three graduate programs are considered equally for these awards so a separate application is not necessary.

Vanderbilt has a rich assortment of core facilities that provide access to techniques and equipment at the frontiers of biomedical research. The VICB operates the Molecular Recognition and Screening Facility, which generates monoclonal antibodies and single-chain antibodies and also provides access to high throughput screening of chemical libraries for interrogation of biological function. Links to other institutional core facilities are provided.
