The BIO5 Institute at the University of Arizona mobilizes top researchers in agriculture, engineering, medicine, pharmacy, and science to find creative solutions to humanity’s most pressing health and environmental challenges.
Since 2001, this interdisciplinary approach has been an international model of how to conduct collaborative research. This approach has resulted in improved food crops, innovative diagnostics, devices, and promising new therapies.
Join us to learn about the research and opportunities that may exist for partnership, and tour a few of the labs.
The BIO5 Institute at the University of Arizona (UA) aims to harness the collaborative power of our five core disciplines – Agriculture, Engineering, Medicine, Pharmacy, and Science – to find bold solutions to complex, biology-based challenges affecting humanity.
BIO5 was launched in 2001 with financial support generated by the Technology and Research Initiative Fund (TRIF), a special investment in higher education made possible by the passage of Proposition 301 by Arizona voters in November 2000. This tax was intended to expand major efforts in biomedicine and biotechnology in the state.
