What sets Boston University apart as a research university?
It is the breadth and depth of its research and the uniquely entrepreneurial spirit of its faculty.
Researchers at BU aren’t afraid to cross disciplinary boundaries, as can be seen by strategic efforts to support interdisciplinary research and education in neuroscience, religion and world affairs, integrative biology, clean energy, sustainability and the environment, health care delivery, and global health, to name a few. In each case, the emphasis is not on interdisciplinarity for its own sake, but on using a multifaceted approach to solve the important and complex problems facing society today.
Leading this charge in neuroscience are our research centers.
