Welcome to the biweekly electronic newsletter from Stanford Bio-X for members of the Bio-X Corporate Forum. The following are key links to the history of Bio-X and the Clark Center (hub of Bio-X): Bio-X Timeline, CLARK CENTER @ 10X, and President John Hennessy's article calling Bio-X and the Clark Center "A Cauldron of Innovation".
Unlike traditional research buildings that keep disciplines separate, the Clark Center was intended to inspire chance encounters between residents from a mix of disciplines and allow creative science to flourish.
