LABORATORY FOR RESEARCH
IN COMPLEX SYSTEMS

We embrace complexity at the LRC

Complex Systems are at the heart of reality.

We develop rigorous quantitative models to better understand inputs, outputs, components and their relationships within complex systems. 

The knowledge we gain from one system can be applied to another, allowing us to develop innovative, high-value solutions aimed at solving long-standing problems in a wide range of fields.

THE BUZZ!!

If you heard the buzz about our work on bacterial sizes... yes, we do talk about centimeter-long bacteria that can be seen with the naked eye... Huge congrats to Dr. Jean-Marie Volland, scientist at LRC (pun intended!)

OUR SUCCESSES!

A molecule against the SARS-Cov-2 virus developed using our automated PC-CAT platform; development of advanced visualization techniques combined with fluid-dynamics; and our entire portfolio of infectious disease work, supported by millions of dollars in funding from organizations like the USAID, represent the continued success of our organization and our scientists!
