Bio-X is a remarkably successful university-wide program at Stanford that could function as a model for interdisciplinary research at McGill. Bio-X’s mission is to catalyze discovery by crossing boundaries between disciplines, to bring interdisciplinary solutions and to create new knowledge of biological systems in benefit of human health. The program involves 550 faculty members from more than 60 Stanford departments.
