Innovation and Impact

The Culture of Innovation builds on a collaborative culture already strong among the faculty, particularly in areas such as applied physical sciences, computational sciences and biomedical engineering. Four priorities will keep us at the forefront of every research horizon and focused on impact in everything we do. They span many disciplines, and funding them will ensure we tackle the world’s biggest problems from many angles.
