Solving the mysteries of bioscience
We are an independent nonprofit bioscience research institute aimed at unlocking the mysteries of human biology through foundational science.
Foundational Science Fuels Breakthroughs
We are leaders in large-scale research that transforms our understanding of human health and disease and shapes how science is conducted worldwide.
Inspiring Next-Generation Scientists
To us, open science extends to inspiring the next generation of scientists by supporting access to science resources, research, and experiences.
At the Allen Institute, we believe teachers are our greatest allies in making open science accessible to the next generation of scientists. We invite you for a fantastic opportunity to collaborate with cutting edge researchers here at Allen to expand your science teaching toolbox to include topics in neuroscience, open science, STEM career pathways, and more. Join us!
