Department of Integrative Biology faculty, research scientists, postdocs and graduate students are affiliated with a number of cross-departmental and cross-college research centers and institutes. They are:

The Biodiversity Center

Home to one of the largest biodiversity collections at a University anywhere and to world-class field stations, the Biodiversity Center provides scientists with opportunities to interact with and learn from millions of preserved specimens, living organisms and ecosystems.

Center for Brain, Behavior and Evolution

Understanding the natural diversity of behavior, in the lab & in the wild is the focus of the Center for Brain, Behavior and Evolution (BB&E), which is also dedicated to the synthesis of evolutionary, psychological, physiological and genomic approaches to the study of behavior. The Center fosters collaborative research and education to promote innovation within the field, and communicate these advances to the public. Through basic research, we provide novel perspectives on problems in human health, wildlife conservation and other applications of behavioral sciences.

Center for Biomedical Research Support

The Center for Biomedical Research Support (CBRS) provides access to cutting-edge technology and expert advice to enhance research. There are six cores with the following focuses: Biological Mass Spectrometry, Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, Genomics, Molecular Structure, Microscopy and Flow Cytometry, and Transgenics. You can also obtain a large variety of supplies from the STEM Stockroom and from their freezer supply core. You can utilize their High Performance Computing infrastructure and collaborate with their bioinformatics consultants to turn the data they help you generate into new discoveries and insights.

Institute for Cellular and Molecular Biology

Fundamental research into the basic processes of living cells and tissues is crucial to future advances in medicine and biotechnology. Indeed, in few fields of study are basic discovery and practical applications so closely intertwined. In 1993, The University established the Institute for Cellular and Molecular Biology to focus efforts on the revolutionary developments occurring in molecular biology, genetics, cell biology, and genomics.
