We believe good ideas can come from anywhere. We choose projects by engaging deeply with the scientific and medical communities to identify unmet needs and barriers to success. We learn by reaching out to leaders formally, through meetings and workshops, and informally, through collaborations. Some leaders are found in scientific societies, government agencies, disease foundations, the biotechnology industry, and philanthropic foundations. Some leaders are young visionaries who are still in training. With their advice, we identify projects that align with our goals and values: collaboration is the key to success, and technology is our differentiator. Our initial projects are outlined below.
We support the open sharing of data, code, and ideas, because it lets scientists build on each others’ work to make new discoveries, faster. Here’s a growing list of resources that scientists and software engineers can check out to learn more about the work we’re doing to accelerate science.
