The University of Michigan has world-class schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Engineering, Natural Resources and Environment, Public Health, and Nursing. Also contributing to our excellence and potential in the biosciences are outstanding natural and physical science departments within the College of Literature, Science & the Arts, and free-standing institutes in Life Science and Social Research.

The key to our future success will be determined by our ability to be more than the sum of our many excellent parts. The President’s Advisory Panel on the Biosciences was charged with recommending strategies that will propel Michigan to the forefront in critical areas of life science research by optimally leveraging our comprehensive excellence.
