Institutes and Centers

BioCircuits Institute
BioCircuits Institute
The BioCircuits Institute focuses on the computational modeling of biological networks at multiple scales.

The team is comprised of over 50 faculty from multiple departments and institutions, including the San Diego Center for Systems Biology, the Scripps Research Institute, the Salk Institute, the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, and the University of California San Diego.



Center for Aerosol Impacts on Climate and the Environment
Center for Aerosol Impacts on Climate and the Environment (CAICE)
The Center for Aerosol Impacts on Climate and the Environment (CAICE) is a Phase I Center for Chemical Innovation funded by the National Science Foundation. The investigators intend to explore the role of atmospheric aerosol in our changing climate from a fundamental chemistry perspective using both experimental and theoretical methods.



Lipid Maps Institute
Lipid Maps Institute
The Lipidomics Gateway: a free, comprehensive website for researchers interested in lipid biology. Use the site to stay abreast of developments each month from across the field, and explore the rich information collections, tools and resources from the LIPID MAPS consortium.



Center for NMR Spectroscopy and Imaging of Proteins
Center for NMR Spectroscopy and Imaging of Proteins
The overall goals of the Resource are to develop new technology for NMR spectroscopy and to make it available to the biomedical research community for structure determination of proteins in biological supramolecular assemblies, such as membrane proteins or virus particles.



The San Diego Center for Systems Biology
The San Diego Center for Systems Biology
Under the umbrella of Systems Biology the biological and biomedical sciences are being revolutionized by unprecedented experimental tools that enable genome-wide, high throughput dynamic measurements and perturbations, and the engineering of genetic circuits, cells and tissues.
