The Impact of Convergent Bioscience

The faculty and research teams of the USC Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience are working on new frontiers in medicine and health. Interdisciplinary collaboration is leading to the development of new life-saving devices and therapeutics.

Science and engineering come together to improve lives

The USC Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience is tackling the most critical health issues of our time by transforming how research is conducted. We’re taking down walls that have separated experts in different disciplines fighting the same disease.

A hub of medical advancement

Advances in the understanding of living systems spurred by the genome revolution – coupled with improvements in computing technology – have positioned humanity to make undreamed-of advances in the biological sciences in the near future.

At USC, collaboration leads the way

With the tools and infrastructure here, USC is becoming a destination for training the world about how convergence can be applied to medicine, science and engineering.
