Online on Zoom

Speaker: Dr. Christopher Contag
Director of the Institute for Quantitative Health Science and Engineering
Chairperson, Department of Biomedical Engineering
Michigan State University (MSU)

Michigan State’s Institute for Quantitative Health Science and Engineering (IQ) was established to improve life through knowledge and innovation by creating and advancing the tools for quantitative analyses and integration of complex biological systems, and then using  these tools for a greater understanding of life and living systems to improve human health and control disease. In this presentation, Dr. Contag will describe IQ and its formation, highlight the science that has developed the institute, and discuss best practices for building centers of excellence that extend the breadth and depth of MSU’s research and educational mission.
