IEEE is able to provide a wide diversity of expertise, information, and resources that are related to health and to the life sciences. This expertise, however, is often distributed across many organizations, thus posing challenges for integrating the expertise and collaboration among organizations. One of the important functions of the Life Sciences Technical Community (LSTC) is its ability to bring together expertise from the various IEEE societies and organizations and have these entities work as a whole.

Chemical engineers at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) have developed an artificial leaf that can act as a mini-factory for producing drugs, an advance that could allow medicines to be produced anywhere there is sunlight.
IEEE Life Sciences Letters (LSL) is a new digital, peer reviewed open access journal. The LSL publication will focus on shorter papers with a quick turnaround, in the area of personalized medicine, pharmaceutical engineering, synthetic biology, and systems biology. Learn more about the scope here. Information for authors can be found here.
The IEEE Life Sciences eNewsletter is a new initiative to bring forth interesting articles and informative interviews within the exciting field of life sciences every month. Please subscribe to the eNewsletter to receive notification each month when new articles are published.
