Nathan Bivens, director of the Genomics Technology Core at Bond Life Sciences Center, holds a special slide that assigns barcodes to expressed genes on different places on the tissue. This helps Bivens know where certain gene expressions came from on the tissue.

The Bond LSC exists to demonstrate that a scientific product can be greater than the sum of individual investigators if they are encouraged to work together across boundaries in a world-class environment.

Our innovative culture enables our 30 faculty investigators from 10 academic units to solve problems in human and animal health, the environment, and agriculture.

Housed in Bond LSC are researchers from ten departments and divisions in five schools and colleges:

Three distinct research clusters have formed among Bond LSC investigators:

Bond LSC also has several computational scientists whose interests include bioinformatics and biostatistics, pattern recognition, predictive models of protein structure and protein-protein interactions, and bioinformatics algorithms for systems biology. These informatics specialists partner with researchers across the life sciences spectrum, providing a critical area of expertise necessary in modern scientific research.
