The Building Bridges Lecture Series is underwritten by the Office of the Provost, the Office of the Vice President for Research, the Global Infectious Diseases Institute, the Environmental Resilience Institute, the BRAIN Institute, the Data Science Institute, and the Biocomplexity Institute & Initiative. The goal of this series is to strengthen the culture of trans-disciplinary research at the University of Virginia.
