Center Configuration, Leadership, and Team Structure

CBiRC is organized around research disciplines. Each research discipline has researchers from multiple institutions. To accomplish its goals, CBiRC forms partnerships among outstanding faculty from these universities who have complementary expertise. Three criteria were used to assemble the faculty participants: (1) renowned engineers and scientists with cutting-edge research programs in CBiRC-related biorenewables areas; (2) evidence of pre-existing collaborative relationships with other Center faculty members; and (3) commitment to collaborative research as the key to advancing the goals of CBiRC. While much of the Center leadership team resides at ISU, two of the three research thrusts are led by faculty from partner institutions. The education efforts for the Center will be led from ISU.
