Interdisciplinary Groups

Faculty within ILS specialize in many thematic research areas, including but not limited to the following interdisciplinary groups. These groups are not degree granting, but involve faculty from degree granting departments affiliated with ILS. As an ILS student, you can pursue research in any departmental or interdisciplinary thematic area or you can define your own unique research topic.

Research Group

Systems Biology

Systems biology is an emerging approach applied to biomedical and biological scientific research. Systems biology is a biology-based inter-disciplinary field of study that focuses on complex interactions within biological systems, using a more holistic perspective (holism instead of the more traditional reductionism) approach to biological and biomedical research.
Additional thematic groups of faculty can be found on our Training Grant webpage: Disease Ecology, Genetics, Glycoscience, and Tropical & Emerging Global Diseases.
