Global health stability is possible through the research, development, and implementation of advanced, sustainable technological solutions to predict and detect emerging and reemerging diseases, in all environments, to enable informed decision making.

Systems BiologySystems Biology
The delivery of precision care can be achieved through the linkage of next-generation technologies to clinical practice and the deployment of novel solutions to predict and combat emerging infectious diseases by understanding and exploiting the biological, environmental, and behavioral determinants of health.

Neurological Health and Human Performance
Through greater understanding of the structure and function of the human brain and the neural basis of health, we can develop technology to improve cognitive performance, make strides against neurobiological disease and injury, and develop novel brain–computer interfaces that will transform how we interact with the world around us.

Biomechanics and Injury Mitigation Systems
We can improve human safety, health, and performance through innovative, multidisciplinary solutions by analyzing the complex causes and mechanisms of injury.
