What is the IBI?

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.

We bring together over 200 faculty with a shared interest in biohealth from numerous colleges within Mason who may otherwise work in isolation, such as a physiologist and an engineer both studying prosthetics from different angles. We aspire to provide a collaborative space that allows researchers to make novel connections and implement innovative solutions to today’s most pressing health issues.
