Science Programs

We select science programs by engaging deeply with scientific and medical communities to identify unmet needs and barriers to success. We then identify if and where we can have a differentiated impact in addressing those challenges by supporting technology development, interdisciplinary research collaborations, and partnerships.

We want to enable researchers everywhere to visualize, measure, and analyze the biological processes underlying health and disease using advanced imaging technologies. We’re increasing collaboration and training between biologists and technology experts, improving imaging hardware and software tools, and supporting the development of new imaging technologies.

Open Science

Our goal is universal and immediate open sharing of all scientific knowledge and outputs. With our Open Science program, we empower more people to engage in research practices that accelerate the pace, robustness, and reproducibility of science through partnerships, policies, and grants.

Science in Society

How can we leverage science to address society’s great challenges? We work with patient communities, scientists, policymakers, advocates, and philanthropic partners to catalyze widespread public engagement with science, enable more responsive and inclusive practices, and bring biomedical research closer to the communities it aims to serve.
