ASU pursues bioscience and biomedical discovery to meet critical global challenges in energy, health, sustainability, engineering and education. ASU’s research enterprise empowers the next generation of scientists, professionals, entrepreneurs and educators through an approach that breaks down the traditional silos between academic disciplines and brings together world-renowned experts to solve these challenges.
The School of Life Sciences serves as an academic hub for interdisciplinary centers, institutes and attracting research talent. Dynamic laboratories, state-of-the-art technologies and a vast expansion of research infrastructure now support more than 3,700 students and 107 faculty members. Many pursue discovery and translational research, providing an entrepreneurial climate to bring the best research ideas to fruition.
ASU has created the nation’s first interdisciplinary research institute devoted entirely to innovations inspired by nature’s grand designs. The Biodesign Institute includes 554,000 square-feet of award-winning, LEED-certified buildings, and is Arizona’s largest investment in infrastructure devoted to bioscience-related research. Our 132 tenured research faculty and 200 active research projects and bioscience initiatives are redefining medical research, harnessing cutting-edge technology for the good of the planet, and focusing scientific expertise on the areas of greatest human need.
The health enterprise at ASU includes efforts across the campuses and disciplines, from centers, institutes and academic units, such as the Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation and College of Health Solutions, to partnerships with Mayo Clinic, Barrow Neurological Institute, Dublin City University and other centers of research, medicine, public service and industry.
