Launched in 2019 in the state-of-the-art PAÍS building, the Interdisciplinary Science Cooperative (Co-op) is dedicated to bringing people across disciplines together in the spirit of producing stronger research outcomes that positively impact our world.

Jillian Rutherford is a first-year Ph.D. student working collaboratively with the Comparative HuMan and Primate Physiology Center (CHmPP) and the Center for Advancement of Spatial Informatics Research & Education (ASPIRE) at the Co-op to advance our understanding of human evolution. Through a truly revolutionary approach, Rutherford is using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to track chimpanzees in Africa from right here in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Learn how students and faculty are benefitting from this new interdisciplinary program, find out how Rutherford is increasing our understanding of these incredible animals, and tour the new state-of-the-art facility that is truly putting UNM on the map as a nationwide leader in research and education.
