How We Support Science at CZI
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 advancing human health and treating disease, but much more can be achieved in the years to come. We seek to accelerate progress by awarding grants for scientific research that can advance entire fields, building and funding transformative technologies in partnership with the scientific community, and fostering interdisciplinary collaborations in science.
Our Science Programs
We work in areas where we think we can make a differentiated impact though supporting technology development, interdisciplinary research collaborations, and partnerships. Lean about our work in science.
Chan Zuckerberg Biohub
In September 2016, Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg committed $600 million over 10 years to fund the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub, an independent nonprofit research center that brings together physicians, scientists, and engineers from UC San Francisco, UC Berkeley, and Stanford University. The CZ Biohub seeks to understand the fundamental mechanisms underlying disease and to develop new technologies that will lead to actionable diagnostics and effective therapies.

“Collaboration, risk taking, and staying close to the scientific community are our best opportunities to accelerate progress in science.”
Meet Our Team
We can’t accelerate science alone. Our Science Advisory Board informs our priorities and allows us to draw on a wide range of expertise as we shape our strategy, establish partnerships, and develop scientific projects.
