About Us

Our goal is to uncover basic principles governing biology, to learn from biology to build novel engineering systems, and to address fundamental questions that impact human health and disease.

To do so, we bring researchers from all of Harvard's life sciences departments together with faculty from engineering and physics who develop new measurement techniques, faculty from statistics who make causal inferences from increasingly large data sets, and faculty from mathematics who build predictive models that allow us to understand and control living systems. We provide research opportunities, foster collaborations across disciplines, and train the next generation of scientists working at the interface of biology, statistics, engineering, and mathematics.
