The Centers

Boston University boasts one of the nation’s largest clusters of scientists in systems neuroscience, which examines brain function at the cellular, molecular, and cognitive levels. We’re also pioneers in the field of biological design, which seeks to build new biological systems with the tools and techniques of engineering. These disciplines, in our view, represent the most vital research priorities of the 21st century. Now, our leading centers in these fields will be housed together in the same dynamic facility, cross-pollinating the research environment and planting the seeds of progress.
