Center for interdisciplinary Bio-inspiration in Education and Research (CiBER)
CiBER proposes to discover fundamental principles from biology that inspire novel design in engineering and train the next generation of biologists and engineers to collaborate in mutually beneficial relationships. This nature-inspired approach can instruct us how to best use new materials and manufacturing processes developed by engineers to address current and future problems. CiBER hosts over 30 faculty members from 7 departments (Integrative Biology, Molecular and Cell Biology, Bioengineering, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Psychology) and the Berkeley Natural History Museums.
