[Source: Az Biz] – In 2001, Bio 5 brought together University of Arizona scientists in five key research areas — basic science, agriculture, medicine, pharmacy and engineering — to foster collaboration critical to finding solutions to the complex biology-based challenges affecting humanity today:
How do we prevent, treat and cure the myriad diseases we face? How do we create more resilient crops, nutritious foods and new sources of fuel? How do we address the many environmental problems that surround us today?
Support for research collaborations among Bio 5-affiliated faculty who address these questions is key to Bio 5’s nine-year success. These 200-plus faculty members come from eight UA colleges and represent more than 50 departments and units across campus.
