We support research on subjects as diverse as the relationship between diet, human health and the environment, avoiding future pandemics, and developing more efficient models of drug discovery. Whether working with machine learning experts to understand vast, complex biomedical datasets or ethicists to develop a new understanding of collective moral responsibility in the face of infectious disease, our approach is to bring together researchers from different disciplines to advance human health and improve quality of life.
