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.
The Paul G. Allen Frontiers Group hosted a virtual edition of our annual Allen Frontiers Symposium on Tuesday, March 29, 2022. This year’s event offered unique opportunity for a global audience to hear presentations that deepen our understanding of the frontiers of human biology research from seven of the current Allen Distinguished Investigator projects.
The talks covered cell fate, aging, evolution, the immune system, and health and disease. If you missed this live event, you can view a full recording and learn more about the speakers below.
