Brains & Behavior Program (B&B) – B&B is an interdepartmental program that promotes research collaborations and dialog through graduate courses, lectures, grants, and much more. Researchers and students involved in this program span the departments of Biology, Chemistry, Computer Information Systems, Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics, Philosophy, Physics and Astronomy, and Psychology.

Evidence-Based Cybersecurity Research Group – This interdisciplinary research group is based in Georgia State’s Andrew Young School of Policy Studies. It seeks to produce empirical evidence and provide systematic reviews of existing empirical research regarding the potential effect of existing cybersecurity policies and tools in preventing the development and progression of cyber-dependent crimes. The group is a collaboration between researchers from the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology in the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies, the J. Mack Robinson College of Business, and the Department of Computer Science in the College of Arts and Sciences.

Molecular Basis of Disease Program (MBD) – The MBD program in computational biomedicine includes faculty in six departments engaged in interdisciplinary research: Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Physics and Astronomy, Mathematics and Statistics, and Computer Information Systems. The program provides both graduate and undergraduate fellowships as well as support for state-of-the-art facilities in these departments.

Neuroscience Institute – The Neuroscience Institute promotes research and education in the set of disciplines that have a common interest in understanding the structure and function of the nervous systems of animals, including humans.

Undergraduate Research – Undergraduate students are encouraged to collaborate with faculty on research projects. Student projects are eligible to be presented at the annual Georgia State Undergraduate Research Conference, which is organized by Georgia State’s Honors College.
