This grant will provide the lab with five years of funding as well as the opportunity to collaborate with and use state-of-the-art research facilities at the Biohub, a non-profit research organization with the goal of developing novel technologies to transform biomedical research. It is funded by a philanthropic investment of $600 million by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and pediatrician Priscilla Chan. The Biohub is located directly adjacent to the UCSF Mission Bay campus.
