The Campus engages on a global platform to bring in the best in Science to the campus and the country. As scientists we must engage across our own institutional and national borders to take advantage of the rich resource of people and talent in other locales. Due to the tremendous breadth of research we encompass - across spatial and temporal scales necessary to grasp the complexities of biology, from molecules to ecosystems, and nanoseconds to evolutionary time NCBS has many international collaborations with a number of first-class institutes that are more specialized. Such collaborations allow our faculty at NCBS to have access to the depth of research necessary to succeed, and are only possible in a globally connected world.
