Message from the Chancellor and Director


I-CARES nurtures interdisciplinary work and collaborative efforts that accelerate the pace of progress in the discovery and application of knowledge addressing the great energy, environmental and sustainability challenges facing our planet.
Mark S. Wrighton, Chancellor
Washington University in St. Louis



I think of the 'C' in I-CARES as 'catalyst.' If we can bring someone from law, business or architecture to the same table as people from medicine, engineering, the Brown School and Arts & Sciences, then we have the forum to come up with novel ways of making energy and making the environment renewable and sustainable.
Himadri B. Pakrasi
Director, I-CARES
