Bio-X Stanford University

In early 1998, a group of Stanford faculty led by James Spudich developed the concept of an interdisciplinary research and teaching program in bio-engineering, bio-medicine and bio-sciences.  In September 1998, a formal planning committee was creating spanning Humanities and Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, Earth Sciences and Law.

"The Stanford University Bio-X program supports, organizes, and facilitates interdisciplinary research connected to biology and medicine.

Ideas and methods embodied in engineering, computer science, physics, chemistry, and other fields are being brought to bear upon important challenges in bioscience. In turn, bioscience creates new opportunities in other fields.  Significant discoveries and creative inventions are accelerated through formation of new collaborative teams."
