Applied Research Consortium

Faculty

CBE faculty who participate in ARC are making a commitment to a new model of praxis-based research and education that will shape practices in their fields. As they work with firms to develop applied research projects and mentor the graduate student fellows carrying out those projects, faculty will build their networks and open new possibilities for advancing their own work.
