CZI | How We Support Science
Is it possible to cure, prevent, or manage all diseases by the end of this century? We think so. In the last 100 years, biomedical science has made tremendous strides in understanding biological systems, advancing human health, and treating disease, but much more can be achieved in the years to come.
We build open source software tools to accelerate science and generate more accurate and biologically important sources of data. We fund scientific research worldwide to advance the frontiers of knowledge. And we launched a family of institutes to do research that can’t be done in conventional environments. Each aspect is essential to our approach to building for the long term.
Building the Future of Science
Over the next 10 years, our north star is to understand the mysteries of the cell and how cells interact within systems, which we believe will lead to discoveries that will change medicine in the decades that follow.
Transformative medicine is most often derived from discoveries in basic science.
Understanding disease reveals fundamental human biology.
Technological advances are revolutionizing our understanding of how cells function in health and disease.
Fundamental questions in human biology often have a line of sight to medical applications, and understanding cells are important in answering those questions.
BuildOur Tools for Scientists
We aim to help make every scientist a better scientist by improving the tools and technologies they rely on every day. We work closely with researchers to understand their challenges and build solutions for the scientific community. Learn more about our tools.
FundOur Science Programs
We work in areas where we think there are deeply inspiring problems that are amenable to software innovation. We strive to make a differentiated impact through supporting technology development, interdisciplinary research collaborations, and partnerships. Learn about our work in science.
DoOur Scientific Institutes
We created new scientific institutes to take on grand scientific challenges in areas such as imaging, cell biology, neuroscience, and artificial intelligence while building new technologies and tools to tackle them. Learn more about the science we do.
