In the new JUMP Simulation Center, built specifically to train future physician-innovators, immerse yourself in three levels of simulation (vs. the classic model of one level). Simulation technologies including standardized patients, mannequin-based simulators and virtual reality simulators are integrated into all cases. Here you will experience the latest in engineering innovations and research, preparing you for a future in technology-driven medicine.
Carle Health is the leading medical provider in Central Illinois. It is recognized nationally for critical, stroke, pulmonary and gastrointestinal care. Through a partnership, the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and Carle Foundation Hospital are among only a handful of communities to offer a Siemens Healthineers MAGNETOM Terra 7 Tesla MRI scanner for both clinical and research use. Carle Illinois students and faculty have access to a full-scale, integrated health care system from which to draw knowledge and develop expertise.
Beckman Institute for Advanced Science + Technology
The Beckman Institute fosters interdisciplinary collaboration to produce scientific and technological advances that wouldn’t happen in individual departments. Researchers from all over campus, including clinical affiliates, are harnessing and creating cutting-edge tools to make incredible advances and translate them to the medical community.
Big Data + Supercomputing
Illinois has long led the world in using computer simulation and data analytics to solve global problems. The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), a hub for supercomputing at Illinois, provides an integrated cyberinfrastructure essential to our ability to collect and analyze large, complex data sets—one of the keys to understanding global health trends, the effectiveness of treatments across populations and finding new vulnerabilities in the DNA of known diseases.
Maker Lab Network
Dream it. Make it. The Health Maker Lab is a network of fabrication labs where the only limit to harnessing technology to improve human health is your imagination. Carle Illinois students will bring their ideas to life by engineering new solutions to global health challenges through forward design and synthesis of frontier molecules, cells, tissues and systems that translate to improve human health and well-being.
University of Illinois Research Park
Your future innovations and business goals will become a reality with the University of Illinois Research Park–a technology hub for corporate research and development operations, and startup companies. The EnterpriseWorks Incubator is an award-winning incubator focused on science and research-based startups commercializing technology from Illinois.
Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology
The Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology (IGB) is where science meets society - an interdisciplinary institute dedicated to transformative genomic research and technology in the life sciences. The IGB uses team-based strategies to tackle grand societal challenges in fundamental and applied research, such as developing more effective cancer therapeutics, creating more efficient and robust food and fuel crops, or uncovering the origins of life.
Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Institute
IHSI supports faculty-driven research by organizing the campus around health challenges, team-building, coordinating projects and managing grant efforts. IHSI makes a point to fuse technological advances with health science research and fosters medical breakthroughs to help people help themselves.
