Biological and Neurodevelopmental Sciences
Computational Biology Institute: The Computational Biology Institute builds on GW’s strengths in life sciences and computational science to better understand complex biological systems and manage an ever-growing volume of biological and genetic information.
GW Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Institute: GW will invest more than $5 million to establish the GW Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Institute as a leader in autism research and policy. The Institute will be primarily based at VSTC, with a dual presence in Washington, D.C., to support cross- disciplinary collaboration with GW faculty and external partners. Research will be conducted on the full spectrum of autism, with a focus particularly on adults and females. In addition to research, the Institute will offer clinical services and support for children and adults on the autism spectrum.
GW Center for Biomolecular Sciences: The new Center for Biomolecular Sciences unites experimentalists and theorists across schools to unravel the molecular mechanisms of biological processes and investigations. These researchers quantify the sequence-structure-function relationships of biomolecules, employing precise measurements and cutting-edge modeling.

Kevin Pelphrey, a global leader in autism research, and $5 million investment will transform GW into a top research and treatment center for adolescents and young adults with autism. The Institute will be based on the Virginia Science and Technology Campus.
GW “Lights it Up Blue” throughout the month of April to commemorate World Autism Awareness Day. GW will invest more than $5 million to establish the GW Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Institute. The Institute will be primarily based at VSTC.
GW is on the brink of new discoveries with the launch of GW’s Center for Biomolecular Sciences (CBMS).
The final tree will map relationships among more than 2 million species of animals, plants, fungi and microbes.
Researchers at George Washington University’s Computational Biology Institute (CBI) have identified a potential link between microbes (viruses, bacteria and fungi) in the throat and schizophrenia. The discovery may offer a way to identify causes of the disorder and could lead to new treatments as well as diagnostic tests.
GW’s Computational Biology Institute (CBI) has been awarded a grant by the Virginia Innovation Partnership to accelerate innovation and economic growth in Virginia for their proposal “Next Generation Diagnostics.” CBI plans to commercialize new methods of pathogen diagnostics using a novel combination of genomics and informatics.
