University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Illinois researchers will use principles of applied probability, information theory, and control to understand how decentralization, feedback, and dynamics in networks enable complex functions in neurobiological systems, gene regulatory networks, and wireless networks. Long-term, their findings could lead to a greater understanding of the functional architecture of the brain, novel methods for disease treatment, and design principles of next-generation wireless networks. Illinois also will help oversee diversity efforts, encouraging underrepresented groups to take part in scientific research.
