The iHuman Institute selects faculty who are very collaborative and interested in tackling a big challenge that will change the world.The culture is fostered by an annual retreat to build relationships and collaborations and strategize annual operational themes and what's needed to achieve them.
Every principal investigator at the iHuman Institute leads a group of up to ten researchers. The small laboratory size is designed to encourage collaboration between laboratories with expertise in different fields and to benefit from creative thinking and discussion from a variety of research perspectives. More collaboration means more exchanges of ideas, more inspiration, integration, and impactful results. Ideas, inspiration, integration, and impact are just a few of the many reasons why iHuman starts with “i”.
