Advanced Bioenergy and Biobased Products: As the importance of renewable sources for energy and materials increases, research and industry partnerships come together in this signature area to develop biomass-based advanced energy technologies and value-added biobased products such as fuels, specialty chemicals, and fiber products.

Environmental Quality and Sustainability: Work in this signature area seeks to understand, protect, and remediate the environment and ecosystems to ensure long-term sustainability. At the core of this effort is the realization that sustaining population and economic growth must be balanced with the preservation of natural resources and environmental assets.

Food Security, Production, and Human Health: This signature area focuses on improving agricultural production; enhancing the quality of food and feed; ensuring an adequate, affordable, and safe food supply; and maintaining agro-security to ensure food security and the basics of nutritional health for a growing global population.

Role in Wayne County's Ag-Bio Cluster: International leader in agricultural research and development, new business incubator, higher education leader, agricultural extension and services, and a leading brand generator for Wayne County's ag-bio and food products cluster.
