= ISB was established as an untraditional institution, where scientific collaboration could take place across disciplines



ISB pioneered systems biology, which harnesses and integrates the respective insights of biologists, geneticists, computer scientists, chemists, engineers, mathematicians, immunologists and others to answer some of society's most challenging questions related to health and the environment. Since 2000, ISB has grown to more than 230 staffers, which includes 10 faculty members and laboratory groups.

ISB scientists are the deep-sea divers who make sense of the mysteries of how genes, proteins and other molecules control living organisms. This research aids or enables other scientists in their work toward developing cures, treatments and preventive measures for cancers, diseases and environmental ills. The complexity of our work makes it difficult to explain, but what we do, ultimately, is pave the way for major scientific and medical achievements, making progress toward our vision for wellness.
