The CNS-NRT PhD program also capitalizes on the new Indiana University Network Science Institute (IUNI) with over 165 faculty members who participate in network science and complex systems research and who serve in interdisciplinary PhD program committees, co-chaired by research mentors from both CNS and a target empirical domain. IUNI gives us the ability to develop a training activity that seamlessly integrates academic education with interdisciplinary hands-on research to produce a new breed of STEM scientists capable of addressing the complex problems of the XXI century.

In addition to the executive committee and core faculty labs, many exciting CNS research projects are pursued in the various research labs, such as:

Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research (CNetS)
ABC-WAdaptive Behavior and Cognition–West
ALifeArtificial Life Group
CASCIComplex Adaptive Systems and Computational Intelligence
