During Fall 2007, a committee was charged by the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Research with defining the mission and responsibilities of a potential Division of Biomedical Sciences at Illinois. In mid-February, the planning team submitted a report that outlined the mission of a Division, it's potential responsibilities and its relationship to various core units on campus.
DBS Implementation Planning
The report recommended the creation of a coordinating structure to provide strategic research planning and a biomedically-cognizant research administration infrastructure. The Provost and Vice Chancellor supported that recommendation and made the decision to realize the creation of the Division of Biomedical Sciences.
The Division of Biomedical Sciences was established in November of 2008 to align and coordinate biomedical research and training efforts at Illinois to create highly functional links between laboratory research and clinical applications to yield promising outcome-based health solutions.
