[Research] - Strategic Plan introduction
Our focus is on massive simulations of physical systems, repeated to generate robust statistics, and mining vast datasets to identify explanatory patterns.
We are dedicated to developing advanced genetic, molecular, electrophysiological, computational, imaging, and perturbation tools aimed at dissecting the biological processes underlying brain function and RNA physiology.
Our research includes new sustainable/biodegradable materials, nanocomposites, 2D materials, nanofabrication technologies and nanodevices, and new colloidal chemistry approaches.
[Research] - Flagships Programs
[Research] - Flagships' Introduction
[Research] - Flagships' List
The goal is to use our capacity to manipulate matter at various scales to create a world without pollutants. Pollutants can be plastics, heavy metals, toxic nanomaterials, flame retardants, volatile organic compounds, and greenhouse gases.
The goal is to understand how the brain processes information to generate behavior. Computational methods, specifically machine learning, will be used to model neural and cognitive processes and to embody these models in robots.
The goal is to study RNA in order to fundamentally understand biology and so to find druggable pockets in the molecular processes of cells. The ambition of the RNA Technologies Program is to drug the undruggable.
The goal is to develop new methods for instilling knowledge about the laws of physics into data-driven algorithms. Our ambition is for computational efficiency, safety, and trust to make the use of AI more democratic and open to all.
The goal is to develop low-cost, noninvasive sensing devices to assess, in real time, the health status of a person. The flagship investigates technologies to remotely activate and precisely dispense therapeutics.
