Next Generation Leaders

Fostering collaboration and innovation from emerging leaders in bioscience

Emerging bioscience leaders

The Next Generation Leaders (NGL) program at the Allen Institute aims to support emerging and diverse early-career researchers in bioscience who will contribute to cultivating new ideas to make a broad, transformational impact on the future of science while exploring creative approaches to conduct research.

Next Generation Leaders have a passion for collaborative research to understand the complex problems facing bioscience research today. They bring expertise in their chosen research field, sharing fresh ideas and perspectives to enhance scientific research as well as expertise in subspeciality disciplines such as bioethics, pedagogy, data visualization, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Belonging (DEI&B), public health, curriculum development and so forth.
