The Computational Bioscience Research Center (CBRC) was established at KAUST’s inception in 2009 as one of the initial nine KAUST Research Centers with the objective of meeting the challenges in human health, environment and biotechnology with particular relevance to the Kingdom. To this aim, CBRC conducts advanced research into the application of computer science, artificial intelligence, and mathematical modeling in the fields of life sciences, human health, and environmental management. 

CBRC engages synergistically in computational and experimental work enabled by state-of-the-art facilities at KAUST. The primary thrusts of CBRC research in life sciences are bioinformatics, applications of AI and Big Data in biology, biotechnology and human health.
