Human Cell Atlas

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative is proud to fund 38 pilot projects to help build tools and technologies for the Human Cell Atlas.

Mapping the basic units of life

The Human Cell Atlas is a global collaboration to map and characterize all cells in a healthy human body: cell types, numbers, locations, relationships, and molecular components. Once complete, it will be a fundamental resource for scientists, allowing them to better understand how healthy cells work, and what goes wrong when disease strikes. We are proud to support the following efforts to build new technologies, best practices, and data analysis techniques for the Human Cell Atlas. LEARN MORE ABOUT EACH PROJECT >
