​Research Centers & Initiatives

Cardiac Bioelectricity & Arrhythmia Center (CBAC)

An interdisciplinary center housed within the Engineering school, CBAC works to develop new tools for diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias — a major cause of death and disability. >> cbac.wustl.edu


Center for Aerosol Science & Engineering (CASE)

CASE works to characterize fundamental aerosol formation and transformation processes to determine impacts on the environment, climate and human health; and to use these processes to develop new materials to enable energy, environmental and medical technologies. >> aerosols.wustl.edu

Center for Biological Systems Engineering (CBSE)

By leveraging systems science approaches to understand and control biomolecular and cellular networks, researchers seek to understand how cellular processes and decisions are controlled by structures and dynamics of biomolecular networks. >> cbse.wustl.edu

Consortium for Clean Coal Utilization (CCCU)
The CCCU’s goal is to foster the use of coal as a safe and affordable source of energy and as a chemical feedstock, with minimal impact on the environment. The consortium operates under the umbrella of InCEES and is supported by Arch Coal, Peabody Energy and Ameren. >> cccu.wustl.edu

Center for Engineering MechanoBiology (CEMB)
The Center for Engineering MechanoBiology (CEMB) is a multi-institutional Science and Technology Center funded by the NSF to advance the study of mechanical forces in molecules, cells, and tissues in plants and animals. >> cemb.wustl.edu

Institute of Materials Science & Engineering (IMSE)
IMSE provides an interdisciplinary approach to provide the greatest opportunities for unprecedented discoveries and educates the next generation of materials scientists and engineers through an innovative doctoral program. >> imse.wustl.edu

International Center for Energy, Environment & Sustainability (InCEES)
InCEES (formerly I-CARES) was created in 2007 to encourage and coordinate universitywide and external collaborative research on energy, environment and sustainability that cannot be done by single investigators or by single disciplines alone. >> incees.wustl.edu

The Nano Research Facility (NRF)
The NRF cultivates an open and shared research and education environment that brings researchers across disciplines together, particularly in the emerging area of nanomaterials with applications in the energy, environment and biomedical fields. >> nano.wustl.edu

McDonnell Academy Global Energy & Environment Partnership (MAGEEP)
MAGEEP is a consortium of 28 McDonnell Academy universities and global corporate partners that supports the development of innovative ideas in energy, environmental and sustainability research, education and operations. >> mageep.wustl.edu
Center for Sensor Signal & Information Processing

Researchers focus on statistical signal processing and imaging to solve problems in security, defense, biomedicine, energy and the environment.

Center for Biomedical Informatics

The CBI seeks to become the world leader in developing methods and protocols for analyzing biomedical data; and to use those methods to understand biological questions and provide improved clinical care. >>cbmi.wustl.edu

U.S.-India Joint Clean Energy Research & Development Center

The NRF cultivates an open and shared research and education environment that brings researchers across disciplines together, particularly in the emerging area of nanomaterials with applications in the energy, environment and biomedical fields. >> solarstorage.wustl.edu
