Brains, Cells, & Immune Systems: 20 Years of Impact at the Allen Institute
On September 28, we hosted a free public event at the Allen Institute celebrating and reflecting on our contributions to open science over the past 20 years.
The event will included science talks by our researchers on foundational knowledge of the brain, the cell, and the immune system—and discussions on what this work means for understanding life and advancing health.

What does open science mean to you? To celebrate 20 years of open science at the Allen Institute, we welcomed creative answers in the form of artwork from youth ages 5-14.
One winner and one honorable mention were be selected by a panel of judges led by our education team and including scientific staff. Judging criteria included creativity, artistic talent, and how well the design encompasses or represents our theme or suggested topics in open science.
What does open science mean to you?
“Open science is the multidisciplinary sharing of and collaboration on scientific data, results, and methods in furtherance of progressive science for the good of the planet and mankind.”
“Being curious and creative to make new discoveries that may make the world a better place.”
