Faculty

We are actively recruiting new and existing faculty to jumpstart our convergent bioscience effort within the Michelson Center. Drawn from across a broad spectrum of research fields, ranging from computational sciences and applied mathematics to nanoengineering and biology, this group of pioneers represents our human capital in the startup phase of convergence at USC. Diverse in age, ethnicity and expertise, they are already interacting and creating new collaborative interfaces and technological innovation spanning our entire science, engineering and medical enterprise.
