Evans Center for Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research (Evans Center)
The goal of the Evans Center is to promote growth and discovery in emerging interdisciplinary biomedical research and educational areas by providing faculty affiliated with the Department of Medicine and with various schools, departments and centers at Boston University a dynamic, interdisciplinary organizational structure, which allows investigators with different areas of expertise to collectively address mechanisms of disease, and to facilitate new training opportunities.
Faculty affiliated with the Evans Center hold academic appointments with different departments. The Center provides opportunities for collaborations within Affinity Research Collaboratives (ARCs) organized around foci of common research interests. The extraordinary strength in biomedical and physical sciences at Boston University, and the support and development of the ARCs create opportunities for new interdisciplinary approaches to both research and training in biomedical research. Basic science discovery promoted by ARCs are also available to the Clinical and Translational Science Institute and to other centers for collaborative translational applications.
