The EBICS Center will also engage faculty from minority-serving institutions on research projects, and work closely with existing outreach and recruitment programs at all partner institutions to ensure the broadest range of participation in all of its programs.

"For the U.S. to be competitive globally in the 21st century it must leverage the inherent strength of its diverse population," said Nerem, the Parker H. Petit Distinguished Chair for Engineering in Medicine and Institute Professor at Georgia Tech. "The more diverse a science and engineering team is, the more likely will the advances in the technology created be truly innovative."

The Center also contains an educational component consisting of a two-track, integrated graduate program for engineers to learn biological science, and for biologists to learn engineering methods across an eight-school consortium, which includes Georgia Tech.

"EBICS offers the opportunity to create a truly innovative, transformative approach to interdisciplinary graduate and undergraduate education," said the Center's education coordinator K. Jimmy Hsia, professor of mechanical science and engineering and associate dean of graduate college at Illinois.

EBICS researchers will also work closely with members of the Global Enterprise for MicroMechanics and Molecular Medicine (GEM4) to expand upon the international collaborations and educational activities fostered by GEM4 in cell and molecular biomechanics and their implications for human diseases and molecular medicine, and from the specialized summer GEM4 training programs organized at different institutions under a separate grant from NSF.

The EBICS Center is one of five new NSF Science and Technology Center (STC) awards.

"These five new STCs will involve world class teams of researchers and educators, integrate learning and discovery in innovative ways, tackle complex problems that require the long-term sup
