The Foundation seeks out research and development projects that look to answer essential questions about living organisms and life processes.
The pioneering research the Foundation supports tackles diverse issues – from emerging technology for life sciences to neural engineering to preventing pandemics.
The mission of The Paul G. Allen Frontiers Group is to uncover and make visible the emerging frontiers of science, identifying pioneering explorers to create new knowledge, and produce important solutions that make the world better.
The Allen Distinguished Investigator program supports early-stage research with the potential to reinvent entire fields.
Following his commitment to tackling Ebola, Paul Allen was one of the first to pledge support for efforts to stop the Zika outbreak.
The Foundation announced new Allen Distinguished Investigator (ADI) grants to six groups of researchers working to grow mature human brain cells in the laboratory.
If Ebola has taught us anything, it is that there is room for innovation in the way we respond to outbreaks.
