Researcher writing down on a notepad with a computer scrren on the leftThe problems that H-STAR focuses on are in general too broad to be solved by a single individual or even within a single discipline. They require an interdisciplinary approach. It is usually not possible to determine in advance which disciplines can best contribute. Accordingly, H-STAR is not based on a traditional membership model. All Stanford faculty are potentially H-STAR researchers. To date, over 80 Stanford researchers from all five schools have carried out H-STAR supported research, participated in an H-STAR research planning retreat, or hosted a visiting H-STAR researcher from another university. Current and past affiliated Stanford researchers are all listed in the current Annual Report. (In addition, some 115 Stanford faculty have received over $5M in research support through H-STAR's mediaX Industry Partners Program.)
