Research Projects at IRMACS

The IRMACS Centre is a unique, interdisciplinary research facility whose goal is to enable collaborative interaction both physically and virtually. IRMACS removes traditional boundaries between scientific disciplines creating an intellectually stimulating environment for its researchers. It provides a flexible, computationally sophisticated environment for almost 300 scientists whose primary laboratory tool is the computer. The IRMACS Centre's thoughtful design encourages contact and exchange of ideas. It fulfils a critical need to house diverse groups of scientists for variable periods of time. The configurable open research facility efficiently incorporates a community of scientists, research associates, students, and visitors in a flexible manner. The list of current projects below and past projects highlight the breath and depth of collaborative research taking place at SFU.
