Research Clusters

CURRENT RESEARCH PROJECTS

CIS brings together researchers from different disciplines in order to take on subjects of major scope. This research initiative is motivated by two long-term goals:

(1) Facilitating research progress on encompassing subjects that go beyond the competence of one or two researchers.

(2) Building large-scale external support for USC researchers from granting agencies and foundations that can sustain major collaborative projects.
