Sanford-Burnham Research Centers
The Institute has five research centers. They are home to ten distinct research programs, each of which consists of a group of independent investigators working together to answer a fundamental biological question. Each of the established scientific programs combines the expertise of a minimum of three, and as many as eight, faculty groups having mutually complementary skills and talents. In addition, program themes are planned in such a way that several programs are mutually supportive of one another. This focused programmatic approach creates opportunities for synergism among research groups and contributes to a scientifically stimulating environment.
