The Mission of Bio-X is to catalyze discovery by crossing the boundaries between disciplines, to bring interdisciplinary solutions and to create new knowledge of biological systems, in benefit of human health.
Message from the Director
Bio-X Seed Grants for Success (IIPs)Bio-X History
Scientific Leadership Council
Stanford Bio-X supports, organizes,
and facilitates interdisciplinary research connected
to biology and medicine.
Ideas and methods embodied in engineering, computer science,
physics, chemistry, and other fields are being brought
to bear upon important challenges in bioscience. In turn,
bioscience creates new opportunities in other fields.
Significant discoveries and creative inventions are accelerated
through formation of new collaborative teams.
Students and faculty are broadening and enriching their
training in science and technology to more fully integrate
fields, departments, and schools at Stanford. Educational
events for Bio-X participants and for the public are planned
to motivate thoughtful discussions of social and ethical
issues connected with scientific advances.
We aim to make Stanford the most exciting place in the
world for combining a broad range of scientific and
engineering disciplines in biosciences research and
for training the next generation of leaders.
