Building Bridges: The Birth of Interdisciplinary Science

The Beckman Institute at the University of Illinois was one of the first interdisciplinary research institutes in the world. Learn how the institute broke through academic barriers to tackle scientific problems that were too big for traditional universities to handle. And watch the pivotal role that founding director Ted Brown played in its creation in the late 1980s. This video celebrates the creation of the Beckman-Brown Postdoctoral Fellowship and Annual Lecture Series in 2015.
