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



I-CARES, as an umbrella organization, coordinates all research activities in the areas of energy, environment, and sustainability. In collaboration with regional and international partners, I-CARES investigators are engaged in cutting-edge research and the development of various forms of renewable energy.
