In order to continue to encourage collaborative activities amongst institutions, and to provide a self-sustainable structure for seeking external funding, which builds upon the gains achieved at DSU through EPSCoR RII-1, DSU has created a new Center for Integrated Biological and Environmental Research (CIBER). CIBER serves as an umbrella for researchers from DSU, Wesley College, DTCC, and the University of Delaware to come together and conduct collaborative, interisciplinary research. CIBER is located in the College of Agriculture & Related Sciences at Delaware State University.
