The Institute for Biohealth Innovation (IBI) promotes and supports biohealth-related research activities of faculty, staff, and students at George Mason University. The IBI connects Mason researchers in biohealth with potential collaborators, both within the university and externally, to advance human health research. Our world-class research community works hand-in-hand with individuals and organizations in the health and wellbeing industries to develop new technologies and interventions. We represent a melting pot of disciplines, including cancer, infectious diseases, brain and behavior, injury and performance, policy, economics, reproductive and family health, and cardiovascular and metabolic studies.
Get to know your NOVA BioHub! This new series provides a mechanism for our life science community to network, share ideas, and get to know one another. Lunch will be provided, and virtual attendance is available. RSVP here: https://bit.ly/3cMbLpq
