Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Institute
The Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Institute (IHSI) supports faculty-driven research at Illinois by organizing our campus around health challenges, team-building, coordinating projects, and managing grant efforts. IHSI makes a point to fuse technological advances with health science research and fosters medical breakthroughs to help people help themselves.
Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology
The Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology is an interdisciplinary research institute devoted to leading-edge research in the physical sciences, computation, engineering, biology, behavior, cognition, and neuroscience. The Beckman Institute’s mission is to foster interdisciplinary research of the highest quality, transcending many of the limitations that are inherent to traditional university organizations and structures. The Institute was founded on the premise that reducing barriers between traditional scientific and technological disciplines can yield research advances that more conventional approaches cannot. It houses the Biomedical Imaging Center and the Imaging Technology Group.
Intelligence, Learning and Plasticity Initiative
The Intelligence, Learning, and Plasticity initiative endeavors to bring together research on, and researchers interested in, eliciting, measuring, and modeling learning and brain plasticity. It encourages multidisciplinary studies of response to various types of behavioral and cognitive neuroscience-directed interventions (including cognitive training, non-invasive brain stimulation, physical fitness training, mindfulness meditation, and nutritional intervention), as well as in efforts to mitigate or reverse the effects of cognitive aging, memory loss, executive dysfunction, brain injury, and disease.
The Neuroscience Program (NSP) at Illinois is an interdisciplinary program of study and research leading to the doctoral degree. We offer a rigorous yet flexible program designed to foster the growth of the student through research activities, close interactions with the faculty, and exposure to top neuroscientists through our seminar series and attendance at professional meetings.
Carle Neuroscience Institute
The Carle Neuroscience Institute is home to some of the most advanced neuroscience services and technology available. Our team of specialists is uniquely trained to treat diseases and injuries of the brain, spine, spinal cord and nervous system. Our comprehensive range of neuroscience diagnostic and surgical services help thousands of area patients live longer, manage their conditions and discover an improved quality of life.
