"Through the CPBR-HBCU program, HBCU scientists and their students are able to interact with biotechnology companies. From these interactions, the goal is to increase the possibility of hiring students as interns and recruiting them as future employees. It is critical that minority students get the education and the motivation to enable them to compete for such jobs."

Prof. Edison Fowlks, Director,
Biotechnology Research Laboratory,
Hampton University

Since 1994, the CPBR Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Institutions (HBCU/MIs) Program has supported collaborative research projects with scientists at minority institutions. The projects link these institutions' scientists and their students with CPBR's peer-reviewed research projects.
