Message from the Chancellor and Director


The key objective of I-CARES is to foster research on energy, environment, and sustainability that cannot be done by single investigators alone. I-CARES nurtures collaboration within Washington University and with regional and international partners and will contribute to more rapid progress in addressing great challenges facing our world.
Mark S. Wrighton, Chancellor
Washington University in St. Louis



At Washington University, I-CARES coordinates and catalyzes all research and educational activities in the areas of energy, environment and sustainability. In collaboration with national and international partners, I-CARES funded investigators are developing solutions to the grand challenges of the 21st century related to renewable energy and climate change.
