The Integrative BioSystems Institute (IBSI) 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.
The Institute will consolidate and foster multi-level research, from the sub-cellular to the physiological and clinical levels, along with educational opportunities offered by several schools within Georgia Tech and by partner institutions within and outside the State of Georgia
