The NBBTP Fellowship is designed specifically for people interested in careers in high-containment. This is an intensive two years, immersive experience where Fellows are introduced to all elements of biosafety. The program includes traditional lectures, reading assignments, mentoring projects and travel to off-site conferences and training sessions.

The NBBTP is a partnership between the Division of Occupational Health and Safety (DOHS) and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the National Institutes of Health. This is a rare opportunity for individuals seeking work in high containment facilities to receive professional training in biosafety and biocontainment at one of the foremost biomedical research centers in the world.
