Learn more about your impact

The Biodesign Center for Biocomputing, Security and Society translates insights between computer science and biology, with a focus on understanding and mitigating malicious behavior in complex systems.

Deep connections between biology and computation lead to surprising insights and spark novel approaches to many of today's most pressing problems. Our areas of interest include cancer, immunogenetics, privacy and cybersecurity, internet freedom and software engineering.

Our interdisciplinary approach to these problems brings biology and computation together in new ways, blending computer science, computational biology, complex systems modeling and wet lab experiments.

Impact of Donor Support

  • Donors bring the world’s brightest minds to Arizona by supporting endowed chairs and professorships.
  • Leaders rise to the top. The Tip of the Fork program enables Sun Devil student-athletes to develop leadership skills through volunteering in their community.
  • Entrepreneurship thrives at ASU. Two examples: The Prepped program supporting minority entrepreneurs has fueled 100 small businesses.
  • And the Edson Student Entrepreneur Initiative has supported 1,000+ students and 297 unique ventures over 15 years.

We believe ASU Biodesign is producing some of the most innovative cancer research in the country."
