BBD Org Chart

The organizational structure of BBD includes a division office and 5 research groups led by group leaders who themselves conduct research and are engaged in standards leadership and development activities.

Drawing from an unrivaled scientific environment at NIST, our cross-disciplinary teams of  biologists, engineers, chemists, physicists, and computer and data scientists are empowered to carry out fundamental research in biological measurement science, foster innovation, and develop transformative standards. 

Many of our project teams, which can include NIST scientists as well as guest researchers and collaborators, are focused on tackling industry wide, pre-competitive measurement challenges. Click here to learn more about our strategic partnerships.
