We are human. We are the next frontier.
A statement from the Allen Institute:
Black Lives Matter.
We, the Allen Institute, stand with our Black employees.
We want to be more than allies. We want to further our commitment as accomplices.
We are in this together.
The Allen Institute is fiercely committed to solving some of the biggest mysteries of bioscience, researching the unknown of human biology, in the brain, the human cell and the immune system. At the same time, we are pushing the frontiers of bioscience to continue to explore the edges of scientific discovery.
Our scientists within each division collaborate in a team science approach, tackling big science projects. And everything learned within our walls is shared publicly across the world in what we call open science.
All this work is done to fulfill our founder Paul G. Allen’s vision for accelerating global progress towards improving health and lengthening life.
