      Thesaurus Linguae Graecae

      Founded in 1972 the TLG represents the first effort in the Humanities to produce a large digital corpus of literary texts. Since its inception the project has collected and digitized most texts written in Greek from Homer (8 c. B.C.) to the fall of Byzantium in AD 1453 and beyond. Its goal is to create a comprehensive digital library of Greek literature from antiquity to the present era. TLG research activities combine the traditional methodologies of philological and literary study with the most advanced features of information technology.

At the outset, CAPH research primarily focused on improving anxiety and pain in the perioperative setting. In 2008, after moving to the University of California, Irvine and CHOC Children's, CAPH has broadened its field of investigation to include multi-disciplinary approaches to managing pain and anxiety in a wide range of medical settings and situations and as such has changed its name to the UCI Center on Stress & Health (CSH).

      Pediatric Exercise Research Center

      Physical activity is a critical moderator of growth and development in children and adolescents. Exercise may also have substantial therapeutic benefits for children who suffer from a variety of chronic disease and disabilities. Despite the clinical and biological importance of exercise in children, there is a surprising lack of research focused on the fundamental mechanisms that link exercise with growth and development in the healthy child or that identifies the mechanisms of therapeutic exercise effects in specific disease conditions.The Pediatric Exercise and Genomics Research Center (PERC) was established in 2006 under the leadership of Dan M. Cooper, MD. The goal of the center is to expand the conduct of interdisciplinary clinical and basic science research and research training in pediatric exercise science.

Barely a day goes by without a major news story about identity theft, privacy-eroding legislation and industry practices, spam, phishing, worms, viruses, etc. Threats to security and privacy come from an increasingly broad array of sources, including organized crime, unscrupulous advertisers, overzealous governments, political protestors, and terrorist organizations. A concerted research effort will be needed in the next one or two decades to develop feasible and effective remedies that are effective, legal, enforceable, meaningful and acceptable for computer users.

      Institute for Complex Adaptive Matter (ICAM)

      It is generally acknowledged that many of the key challenges and opportunities in the study of matter involve understanding complex and collective phenomena. Because these challenges frequently fall at the boundaries between conventional scientific disciplines, there is an urgent need to create new kinds of thinking and institutions capable of exploiting these opportunities. At the core of this new enterprise in the study of matter is the search for an understanding of emergent behavior – phenomena whose ultimate cause involves interactions between many simple units but which cannot be easily predicted from knowledge of the component parts alone. Our shorthand designation for soft, hard, and living matter exhibiting emergent phenomena is complex adaptive matter.
