Integrative BioSystems Institute

The Integrative BioSystems Institute (IBSI) at Georgia Tech is a forum for multi-scale, multi-disciplinary systems approaches toward solutions of grand-challenge problems in biology. IBSI's main focus is the development and application of enabling technologies that are needed to solve some of the grand-challenge questions of biology and medicine of the 21st century. Our initial target applications are developmental processes leading to cancer and the interactions between humans and microbial systems in the environment. Accompanying and supporting these threads are initiatives in high-performance computing, computational modeling, and the creation of macro-, micro- and nano-devices for biosystems research.
