Together we can accelerate science


Science is a new perspective. Science is life-changing. Science is for our community.

Your support can fund transformative science. A gift from you will help our scientists accelerate research that will unlock lifesaving treatments and cures.



If scientists understood how diseases like Alzheimer’s disease start, we might have a better understanding of how to stop it. We are committed to understanding the fundamentals of science and will forge a path to better treatments and ultimately to cures.

Our Allen Institute for Immunology research team, in partnership with other research teams in the Seattle area, aims to tackle one of the most pressing questions about COVID-19: Why do some people infected with the novel coronavirus develop life-threatening symptoms, while others recover with few or even no symptoms at all?

How is a cell built? Can scientists predict what a cell is going to do next based on what it looks like now? Our scientists answer big questions about how human cells work to better understand what makes us healthy and what goes wrong in disease.
