Molecular Biology Institute

The Molecular Biology Institute at UCLA is a hub for interactions between scientific groups, focused on deciphering molecular structures and identifying regulatory cross-talk in living organisms. Since its inception nearly half a century ago, the MBI has catalyzed intellectual exchange across disciplines and departmental barriers. Today this mission remains at the forefront.

Asian American Studies Center

The UCLA Asian American Studies Center (AASC) is one of the most widely respected ethnic studies centers in the country. It has established partnerships with a wide range of community-based organizations locally, nationally, and internationally and helped to develop institutions across Southern California to serve and represent the Asian American and Pacific Islander population.

American Indian Studies Center

The UCLA American Indian Studies Center was founded in 1969 at the University of California, Los Angeles as a research institute dedicated to addressing American Indian issues and supporting Indian communities. The Center also serves as a bridge between the academy and indigenous peoples locally, nationally, and internationally. Today, we foster innovative academic research, publish leading scholarship in the field of American Indian Studies, and support events and programming focused on indigenous issues.
