Each year IBAB takes on board a small group of interns.  Usually these are students who are currently pursuing their degree in some other institution, although occasionally some of IBAB’s own students prefer to do their internship at the institute instead of going elsewhere.  The following individuals are currently interning at the institute. Over the years, there have been several instances of interns who have published a paper based on the work done during their internship at IBAB.

The process of applying to the institute to be an intern is listed here.
