About

The BBCS comprises a team of core faculty, steering committee members, and other affiliated researchers that identified (through a series of workshops in 2016) several cross-cutting research projects that use biodiversity as a focal point for interdisciplinary investigation in public health, governance, informatics, and security.

The scientific goal of the BBCS program is to build a more robust and predictive biodiversity and conservation science and to addresses emerging, critical issues in human health and well-being, and in environmental, food, and national security.
