Interdisciplinary & Collaborative

At The University of Kansas, students and faculty members develop close ties with their colleagues across disciplines and campuses, embracing an interdisciplinary approach. Our world-class affiliate faculty are found in the School of Medicine, School of Pharmacy, School of Business, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, as well as in the many bioscience research centers and labs. Together, they make The University of Kansas an institution that is fundamentally strong, and extremely comprehensive, in bioscience research.


Reaching Out & Making an Impact

The university and our Bioengineering faculty affiliates continually strive to cultivate strong relationships with professionals, businesses and government agencies, with the goal of establishing productive collaborations of translational research that truly makes a difference whether locally, regionally, nationally or globally.
