BI researchers are taking a close look at biointerfaces: the critical junctures between living cells and other surfaces, with the goal of developing new technologies for understanding, diagnosing, and treating diseases.  Researchers are aided in their efforts by another equally critical type of interface - dailly, face-to-face interactions with colleagues from other disciplines - to break through scientific silos, spur collaborations and drive innovation.  

BI research is focused on four main core thrusts that can be rapidly and vertically integrated to address the most pressing biomedical problems.  BI also leverages its footprint to operate four research centers that support its research thrusts.
