Multi-Disciplinary Research Centers & Programs
Molecular Engineering and Science Institute The Institute for Molecular Engineering and Sciences will bring together faculty teams from across the University of Washington campus to catalyze translational research in the CleanTech and BioTech areas. The Institute will be located in the new Molecular Engineering & Sciences Building, a facility specially designed to promote collaborative molecular-scale research
Synthetic Biology the UW Synthetic Biology web portal represents a community of interdisciplinary researchers exploring one of the most exciting frontiers in science and technology: the engineering and evolution of novel life-forms to address technical challenges in health, energy, and the environment and to enhance our general understanding of living systems.
Center for Intracellular Delivery of Biologics
A multi-disciplinary research center with three cores - drug characterization, smart delivery systems, and preclinical models - where scientists develop new approaches for delivering biological drugs inside human cells.
Initiative for Maximizing Student Diversity (IMSD)
IMSD is a series of innovative services and support mechanisms which will dramatically increase the ability of our biomedical graduate programs to attract, retain, and promote the success of under-represented minority students.
