Intellectual Capital

The Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University is working to improve human health and quality of life through use-inspired biosystems research and effective multidisciplinary partnerships. The buildings and surrounding landscape are beautiful. The Institute is made up of several Research Centers that focus on finding solutions to global challenges. For example, the Center for Environmental Biotechnology is working toward creating a more sustainable future through a better understanding of microbial ecology - microorganism communities - by understanding how these complex communities work.

So is your bike sitting in the rack? Just curious, but it appears to me that you ride. I'm guessing your bike is leaning on a tree while you take the photo. Am I right?

I did ride my bike (specialized) for this photo (for most of my photos) - but it was next to me rather than in the rack - nice guess!
