IGPPEB has also formed partnerships with liberal arts colleges, historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), and top-notch universities abroad as an integral part of the program. The partnerships will lead to enhanced scientific collaborations and discoveries, guaranteed positions for undergraduates to conduct research at Yale, opportunities for faculty at non-doctoral and historically black colleges and universities to spend their sabatticals and summer months at Yale, and international exchange programs for IGPPEB students.

The Physics of Medicine initiative is a major new expansion of research activity at the University of Cambridge. It aims to create an environment where researchers can freely mix, discuss and share ideas at the interface of the physical sciences, life sciences and clinical sciences. The new Centre for the Physics of Medicine was opened in December 2008 in West Cambridge, adjacent to the Cavendish. This building, together with the appointment of four new lecturers and the creation of a Chair in the Physics of Medicine, demonstrates the level of commitment by the University of Cambridge to this new venture.
The Weizmann Institute has a number of scientists who are world leaders in quantitative approaches to biological questions. Several IGPPEB faculty have already established collaborations with these faculty. Building on these ties, the IGPPEB will incorporate an exchange program with the Weizmann Institute, permitting IGPPEB students and faculty to spend a three-month research sabbatical in Israel. In addition, Weizmann researchers will be able to participate in IGPPEB research under the auspices of the independently funded Yale-Weizmann exchange program or the Israel Scholar Development Fund of the American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise.
